The descent from Beinn na Srèine
The descent from Beinn na Srčine
Heading west along the ridgewalk from Beinn na Srčine one walks the top of a lava flow which ends abruptly in these basalt crags. Basalt is dark grey to black when first exposed, but weathers to this characteristic rusty colour owing the high content of iron-rich mafic minerals. The whole area is characterised by its orange rock architecture. A reasonably good (though essentially pathless) route descends the grassy drainage from the right of the photo to the col, Eag Fionna Mhŕm, from which the photo was taken.
