Description: Oblique aerial view of Corrie Hallie, Ross and Cromarty. The Moine Thrust. Profile view of photograph D02104 with, from bottom left to top right, white Cambrian quartzite overlain by 'buff coloured' Cambrian Fucoid Beds, followed by Moine schists which form the higher crags above the Moine Thrust. The Moine Thrust is a major structural zone with a network of low-angle thrusts that separate the rocks of an ancient mountain belt, the Caledonides from the more stable foreland of Lewisian, Torridonian and Cambro-Ordovician rocks.
