Description: From the slope of Sgurr Mor, Fannich Forest looking south-south-east, Ross & Cromarty. The eastern crest of Fannich mountains is formed of schists of the Moine Succession. Loch Fannich is in the distance on the right. The hanging corrie holding the rock-basin of Loch an Fhuar Thuill Mhoir is in the foreground to the left. This bowl-shaped hollow has been formed by a former glacier. Frost debris is arranged in parallel terraces due to 'soil-creep' aided by snow movement, on right. The surface of Loch Fannich is at 822 feet while its depth is 282 feet.
