NJ0206 : Moraine-dammed lake, Strath Nethy

near to Allt a Choire Dheirg [water Feature], Highland, Great Britain

Moraine-dammed lake, Strath Nethy
Moraine-dammed lake, Strath Nethy
The way the humpy, rocky moraine extends down Strath Nethy just as far as this pool then stops, and what looks to me like a river terrace is located right next to it suggests that a glacier has come down the strath and bulldozed away part of the smooth terrace feature, but not the rest.
