NJ2914 : Marsh at source of Quillichan Burn

taken 1 year ago, near to Dubh Breac Hill [hill or Mountain], Aberdeenshire, Great Britain

Marsh at source of Quillichan Burn
Marsh at source of Quillichan Burn
This is an unusual feature. The Quillichan Burn flows NE from here to Glen Nochty and the Shannach Burn flows SE from here to Glen Ernan. I presume the steep sided valley of the Quillichan Burn is a glacial meltwater channel and there are extensive fluvio-glacial deposits where this channel joins Glen Nochty (need to do some more research). As we arrived we disturbed a lapwing. A favourite place for the grouse shooting parties.
