Conglomerate boulder towards east end of Bealach Traligill
Conglomerate boulder towards east end of Bealach Traligill
The remarkable defile that is the Bealach Traligill has been eroded along the line of a NW-SE trending geological fault which gets its name from this pass. Several large boulders have tumbled down the hillside and this is the largest of a number which appear to have originated in an outcrop of the basal conglomerate of the Torridonian Sandstone (known formally as the Diabaig Formation), high up the slope to the northeast. The largest 'clasts' are melon-sized. See LinkExternal link for more detail on the area's geology and indeed LinkExternal link
