Ben Tianavaig crags
The root cause of the landslips that created the amazing terrain of the Storr, Quiraing and Tianavaig can be seen here. Horizontal beds of mesozoic sediments are topped by layers of basalt lavas. The bottom layer of basalt is an intrusion that exhibits the vertical columnar jointing that can also be seen at the Kilt Rock NG5066 : Kilt Rock and at Fingals Cave on Staffa NM3235 : Basalt Columns.
