Abstract/Summary

The Findhorn valley, downstream of the Streens Gorge (Fig. 107), contains a particularly good assemblage of glacial features and deposits formed during, and following, the melting the last ice -sheet. This remote area is located 30 km south of Nairn, upstream of Drynachan Lodge [NH 865 397]. It is notable for a series of glaciofluvial and fluvial terraces that occupy the lower part of the north -west -facin g slope of Carn Torr Mheadhoin (543 m OD), together with extensive glacial and glaciofluvial deposits found within the valley between Daless and Creag a’ Chròcain (McEwen and Werritty, 1993 ).
