Description: The Punch Bowl, Quoich Water, 3 km. west of Braemar, Aberdeenshire. 'Pot-hole' in Moine schists, probably due to rotating boulders. Rocks exposed beside stream are flat-lying flaggy psammites (metamorphosed sandstones) of the Grampian Group. Note well-developed, widely spaced, vertical jointing. The Punch Bowl is in the centre of the stream, just right of large block. It is a rounded hollow, about two metres in diameter, formed by the action of a boulder or boulders, trapped in an eddy in the current, eroding the rocks as it is forced to rotate.
