NH1371 : The summit of A' Chailleach

taken 17 years ago, near to A' Chailleach [hill or Mountain], Highland, Great Britain

The summit of A' Chailleach
The summit of A' Chailleach
The path to the summit follows this nicely-defined dog-leg ridge.

David Jarman has provided the following information: The remarkable furrow which follows the crest almost to the summit is the source fracture for a vast landslip (rock slope failure - RSF) which affects the whole S face of A' Chailleach. This one of the clearest of its type in Britain. When the failed mass slides away (after the next ice age ?) it will leave a tasty arete.
