Description: Oblique aerial view of An Teallach and the Moine Thrust, Ross and Cromarty. Looking west-north-west from Carn a' Bhreabadair with Moine schists forming the foreground thrust over the Cambrian rocks which themselves unconformably overlie Torridonian sandstone of the background. The line of white quartzite and vegetation marks the approximate line of Moine Thrust. The Moine Thrust Zone extends from Loch Eriboll to the Sound of Iona and is a major structural feature of the Caledonian Orogeny. It separates in the east, the mainly metamorphic Moine and to the west the stable foreland of Lewisian basement, its cover of Torridonian sandstone and Cambro-Ordovician strata.
