Description: Onich, Loch Linnhe, Inverness-shire. A view of Onich and the Flandrian raised beach. Ardgour Hills formed of Moine metasedimentary psammites in the distance. Although called the '25 ft.' raised beach it is actually at a height of 35 ft. This raised beach is a well-marked feature on the shores of Loch Linnhe and Loch Leven. Relative sea level fell following the final disappearance of the glaciers to be followed by a marine transgression which culminated at about 6000 and 6800 BP. This transgression formed the Flandrian raised beaches.
