Description: Looking north up Glen Roy from 0.8 km. above Cranachan Farm House. Highland Region. Parallel Roads of Glen Roy showing the three successive lake terraces (roads) at levels of 260, 325 and 350 m. O.D. The well-known Parallel Roads are shorelines of ice-dammed lakes. All are associated with the maximum or near maximum positions of the Loch Lomond Readvance glaciers. The shorelines have commonly been formed by erosion at the back and gravel deposition at the front.
