Kames in the plain of Kinross
Kames in the plain of Kinross
The plain of Kinross, despite being over 100 metres above sea level, is one of the flattest-lying areas of Central Scotland. It contains abundant evidence of recent glaciation, of which these low knolls are examples. Known as Kames, they were formed by the accumulation of rock fragments in hollows in the surface of the glaciers during the final retreat of the ice-sheets about 10,000 years ago.
