Geopark Rock Route 2 - Commando Memorial
An excellent interpretation board on the formation of the Ben Nevis Range and the Grey Corries. The boards explains how these mountain ranges were formed by the collision of two plates, melting and the subsequent sculpturing of the landforms by ice. The interpretation board identifies the various peaks and describes the geology of these Dalradian mountain ranges, variously composed of igneous and metamorphic rock. Ben Nevis and Aonach Mor represent the base of an ancient volcano.
A great introduction to the geology of the Highlands. The board is located at the start of walk to the High Bridge and the Commando Memorial walk, near the exit of the car park at the Commando Memorial.
