NG9773 : Beinn Lair Fault

taken 18 years ago, 4 km from Letterewe, Highland, Great Britain

Beinn Lair Fault.
Beinn Lair Fault.
A dramatic example of faulting, gentle swelling hornblende schist hills above Loch Maree, fall away suddenly to the Fionn Loch Basin. The same feature runs to form the shoreline of Loch Ewe.
The distant hill is Beinn Airigh Charr, then Meall Mheinnidh, taken from Beinn Lair. The north face of Beinn Lair is perhaps Scotland's biggest crag. It's a long way to haul a rack, but I know folk who have climbed there.
