Interlocking spurs in valley of Usway Burn
Interlocking spurs in valley of Usway Burn
Downward erosion by the Usway Burn over thousands of years has created a deep valley. Erosion of the outside bends by rapidly flowing water resulted in the sinuous course of the valley resulting in the formation of now massive interlocking spurs extending down steeply from the surrounding hills. There is another view here NT8809 : Sinuous route of Usway Burn valley
