Description: Carn Mor Dearg (1223 m.), 1.6 km. north-east of Ben Nevis, Inverness-shire. Postglacial to recent weathering effects on the mountain tops especially the development of scree slopes. A granite mountain showing, on the summit slope to right, the thoroughly broken-up character of the rock owing to the splintering action of frost and the dispersal by soil and snow creep; and the formation of screes on the steep slope to left. Note the partially lying snow, indicative of conditions where the continuous freeze-thaw is common.
