Description: Looking south-east from Bealach na Ba, Ross & Cromarty. Typical precipices in Torridon sandstone. The Torridonian rocks were deposited on the eroded land surface of the Lewisian gneiss of the North-west Highlands. These rocks formed from a thick accumulation of terrestrial sediments, mostly fluviatile, deposited by a series of large rivers flowing from a continent that existed towards the north-west. Because of the great thicknesses of deposits, up to 7 km. in places it is thought that they were deposited in subsiding basins. Note the old Ford Anglia on the road.
