NS4178 : Auchenreoch Glen

near to Bonhill, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Auchenreoch Glen
Auchenreoch Glen
Auchenreoch Glen was created by a tributary of the Murroch Burn. It is particularly deep and steep-sided, and its southern wall, seen here on the left, remains in shade for much of the year (compare NS4178 : Lime-kiln ruin in lower Auchenreoch Glen), and is sufficiently steep as to be largely free of vegetation cover.

However, this allows the stratification of the rocks to be seen very clearly. These rocks provide a very fine example of the so-called Ballagan Beds, as explained at NS4178 : Ballagan Beds in Auchenreoch Glen, which also provides a closer look at these layers.
