Pebbles in Torridonian sandstone
Pebbles in Torridonian sandstone
These pebbles last moved 850 million years ago when they were pebbles lying in sand under a shallow sea. The red Torridonian sandstone is a coarse arkose with seams of such pebbles within it. It forms the nearby mountains of Beinn Dearg Mor ("Big Red Mountain") and An Teallach ("the Forge"), both named for the red colour of their rocks.
