An amazing display of glaciated slabs approximately 4km west of Glenfinnan The ancient metamorphic rocks belong to the Glenfinnan Group and consist of interbanded psmammites and pelites. Deformation of the Moine rocks is evident in the form of faulting and folding. The rocks also contain igneous intrusions of pegmatite, with large crystals of mica evident.
The slabs have the profile of a roche moutonnée, the product of more recent glacial sculpturing.
The Mudhie is one of the top 100 Geosites in the UK and Ireland.
