NN3189 : Upper Glen Roy and Brunachan

taken 5 years ago, near to Brunachan [other Features], Highland, Great Britain

Upper Glen Roy and Brunachan
Upper Glen Roy and Brunachan
Old terraces either side of the Allt Bhrunachain provide some shelter for the buildings of Brunachan, on the current floodplain of the Upper River Roy. This point is almost 150m below the former surface of the glacially impounded lake which occupied Glen Roy at its greatest depth. This high-stand is represented by the uppermost of three parallel roads (former beaches eroded by waves on the lake) at 350m on the western slopes of Carn Bhrunachain behind the buildings. As the valley glaciers holding back the water retreated, lower cols opened as outlets for the lake, causing a stand first at 326m (the second of the parallel roads, also very visible in this shot) and later at 261m (just distinguishable in the photo).
