Description: Black Moss, 2.4 km. north of Dinnet Station. Aberdeenshire.The kieselguhr (diatomite) works. Kieselguhr overlain by peat marking site of silted-up lake. The vertical trenches show the method of draining the peat. Recently-cut blocks can be seen as well as rails of a light railway. The moor of Dinnet is a glacial basin feature containing low ridges of sands and gravels interspersed by depressions occupied by lochs and peat bogs (mosses). The diatomite occurs below the peat in these lochs and mosses.
