Description: Scenery at Gruinard Bay, direction of view west-south-west, Ross and Cromarty. Hills of Torridonian sandstone rise above glaciated outcrops of Lewisian gneiss on the far side of the bay. At the head of the bay are raised beaches originating from isostatic rebound after the melting of the last ice age glaciers. Lewisian gneiss forms the glaciated surface in the foreground and the large erratic boulder in the bottom right.
