Description: Looking north from near Oskaig, 1.6 km. north of Raasay House, Island of Raasay, Inverness-shire. Raised beaches on west side of Raasay. The bare glaciated surface of the Tertiary granophyre sill is seen in middle distance on the right and on Holoman Island, the latter attached to the mainland by beach deposits. A natural arch formed by marine erosion can be seen on Holoman Island. The low raised beaches are of immediately postglacial age.
