Description: Gleann Einich, 10.5 km. south-south-east of Aviemore. Looking towards Braeriach, Cairngorms. Inverness-shire. Lateral moraine (in middle distance) with fluvioglacial terraces below. The lateral moraine was deposited at or near the edge of a mountain glacier while the fluvioglacial terraces were formed by deltaic deposits laid down by the drainage from the hillsides and high-level corrie glaciers into a glacial lake being held up by the Einich glacier. The overall picture in the area was one where the high northern slopes of the Cairngorms were mostly free of ice, apart from the high corrie hanging glaciers. The great hollow of Glen More was filled with an ice mass, tongues of which protruded into the lower parts of Gleann Einich and the Lairig Ghru forming a dam behind which a glacial lake formed.
