Description: Russel Burn, looking north-west into Coire nan Arr below Sgurr a' Chaorachain, Ross and Cromarty. A U-shaped glaciated valley in Torridonian sandstone. A river-cut valley that would almost certainly originally have been V-shaped in profile has been modified by the valley glaciers to a well-developed, smoothly glaciated, broad-bottomed, U-shaped cross-section by side or lateral erosion by the glacier.
