NH3758 : Boulderfield, Sgurr Mharcasaidh

near to Little Scatwell, Highland, Great Britain

Boulderfield, Sgurr Mharcasaidh
Boulderfield, Sgurr Mharcasaidh
Frost shattered schist, broken up from slabs at the end of the iceage into a steep boulderfield. A popular habitat for birdlife. Some trees can grow here, as the rocks protect them until they get big enough to withstand grazing. On the steep southern slopes of the eastern top of Sgurr Mharcasaidh. (Unsure of the spelling - OS have it as Marcasaidh, but I would expect a soft mutation equivalent after Sgurr. - I await the comments)
