Shakehole, Glenegedale Moor, Islay
Shakehole, Glenegedale Moor, Islay
Shake or sink holes are formed when acidic peat water erodes the limestone beneath the peat and the land 'sinks' causing depressions to form in the landscape. This area on Islay is part of a limestone belt and there are therefore quite a few of these shake holes, which brighten up an otherwise quite featureless landscape.
