NO1172 : Post-glacial debris flow (looking uphill)

taken 6 years ago, 3 km from Spittal of Glenshee, Perth And Kinross, Great Britain

Post-glacial debris flow (looking uphill)
Post-glacial debris flow (looking uphill)
A narrow ridge of rocks runs down from Carn Dubh almost to the A93 road. If I have understood what I read correctly, this is a lateral levee, created when sediment slid down the hillside. Fine, free-flowing material pushed the larger boulders aside to create the ridge of rocks.

See NO1172 : Post-glacial debris flow (looking downhill) for a view of the same feature below the track.
