Description: From Raasay, looking south towards the distant mountains of Skye, Inverness-shire. A view across the Tertiary central igneous complex. The gabbros and ultrabasic rocks of the Cuillins on the left and Blaven range on the right were the first plutonic rocks to be emplaced in a broad oval mass 9-13 km. wide. Following this the centre of activity shifted to the north-east which gave rise to the granites of the Western Red Hills of which Glamaig and Beinn Dearg Mhor in the centre of the photograph are formed (though parts of Glamaig including the summit are formed of Tertiary lavas).
