Description: Carn Dearg Meadhonach, 2.0 km. north-north-east of Ben Nevis, Inverness-shire. Postglacial weathering effects on the mountain tops. A view slightly to the left of C01783. The mountain, composed of granite shows on the gentle slope to left, the thoroughly broken-up character of the rock. The whole surface is littered with fragments and slabs which have been prized loose by the splintering action of frost and then dispersed by soil and snow creep; and on the steep slope to right, the formation of aretes and screes.
