Melting ice in the Burn of Burrafirth
Melting ice in the Burn of Burrafirth
The long freeze over Christmas and New Year has been followed by a very strong southerly gale. The wind has smashed the ice that covered the Loch of Cliff into chunks, which have then been blown to the north end of the loch and the loch's outflow, the Burn of Burrafirth. This ice had accumulated in a bend, and the clear white ice was sticking out of the water, but as soon as it fell into the water it turned brown, presumably the muddy water soaking into the gaps and bubbles exposed as the ice melted.
