Description: Bearreraig, 9.7 km. north-north-east of Portree, Skye (Inverness). Exposure of Lower Oolite sandstone giving rise to waterfall. A bed of near horizontal strong rock overlying weaker beds located downstream enable the latter to be relatively quickly worn down and the strong resistant bed begins to be undercut. Rapids would have formed first and with development, the face would become vertical and so form a waterfall as in the photograph.
