Description: Fairy Glen, The Dens, 1.6 km. north of Fortrose, on the southern side of Rosemarkie Glen. Ross & Cromarty.The formation of earth pillars by rain wash in the tills that fill an old valley. Earth pillars are usually developed on the slopes of valleys from spurs and ribs. The slopes of earth pillars usually range from near vertical to about 60 degrees and all usually develop under a cap of resistant material, this may be a boulder, fossil etc. In the case here, the resistant material is the soil and vegetation.
