NM9595 : The Cioch

taken 13 years ago, 5 km from Strathan, Highland, Great Britain

The Cioch
The Cioch
A 10m high pinnacle on the ridge of Druim a'Chuirn. It's like the more famous Cobbler, caused by a landslip.
Failed slopes are a common feature and were probably caused by water lubricating weaker rock layers in glacial times. Some of the slides were huge, whole hills just slid off.
