Description: Head of Loch Glencoul, 8.8 km. north of Inchnadamph, Sutherland. Typical scenery of the Lewisian gneiss area. The craggy ground is formed of Lewisian gneiss, a residual fragment of the ancient Laurentian continental mass. The distant hilltop on right, the Stack of Glencoul is composed of rocks of the Moine Succession, a group of metasedimentary rocks laid down on the Lewisian basement between 1500 and 1025 Ma. They are separated by the Moine Thrust, a major thrust that has forced the Moine over the Lewisian foreland by up to 100 km.
