East Lothian Landscape : The Deuchrie Channel Seen From Above Sandy Knowe
East Lothian Landscape : The Deuchrie Channel Seen From Above Sandy Knowe
This is a view of part of the western section of the Deuchrie Channel looking NE up the channel to its watershed between Deuchrie Wood and Rammer Wood.

The channel is believed to be glacial in origin, although without further research it would perhaps be unwise to say whether it was formed by subglacial or post glacial processes. For geographers interested in this subject a useful starting point is the long-standing pocket reference book "The Geology of the Lothians and South East Scotland - An Excursion Guide" by G. Y. Craig and P. McL. Duff (Scottish Academic Press, 1975). Pages 138 to 141 offer a description of the Deuchrie Channel.
