Description: North end of Loch Callater, 7.5 km. south-south-east of Braemar, Aberdeenshire. Looking north-west. Typical example of a lake formed by a morainic barrier (local valley moraine). Contact of Lochnagar Granite runs under loch. Hills in distance made of Gleann Beag Limestone (Ballachulish Subgroup) and Gleann Beag Schist (Blair Atholl Subgroup). Moundy glacial deposits (middle ground), possibly laid down as the terminal moraine of a valley glacier, have acted as a barrier to drainage and ponded the waters of Loch Callater behind them.
