NT0173 : Beecraigs Hill

taken 4 years ago, 3 km from Kingscavil, West Lothian, Great Britain

Beecraigs Hill
Beecraigs Hill
Beecraigs Hill is a modest affair, one of several such that make up the Riccarton Hills. These are formed by a series of lava flows, which have resulted in an example of trap topography. 'Trap' is from the Swedish word for stairs or steps, and is applied to topography where a series of lava flows lies in a stepped pile. I have to confess that the Riccarton Hills, viewed from here, are not the most obvious example of traps that I have ever seen. Compare with NT0274 : Mochrie's Craig traps, West Lothian, however.
