Description: 1.6 km. south-east of Daless, Findhorn Valley. Remains of pine forest on an ancient land surface exposed by natural decay of peat. A former dense cover of pine trees is suggested by the abundant pine stumps, roots and broken trunks exposed in deflation hollows such as the one in the photograph. It is thought unlikely, however, that all the trees were coeval. Deflation hollows are small hollows or depressions caused by wind erosion. Removal of the vegetation can lead to greater erosion.
