NT0129 : Cowgill

taken 7 years ago, 4 km from Lamington, South Lanarkshire, Great Britain

The meandering stream is a missfit. A look at the map shows some deep meltwater channels cutting through the surrounding hills. They also carved this wide glen, far too wide for the small burn now flowing here.

My thanks to Anne Burgess and her geologist friends for an interesting discussion and explanation of this feature.
