Moraines in Strath Nethy
Moraines in Strath Nethy
Moraines overlain with a lot of rock that has fallen from the cliffs above. This seems very low down for a lateral moraine, I think they fell across snow banks once the last glacier had melted away. When the glacier was no longer present to support the glen side, it would have been very prone to collapse.
