Description: Loch Ossian looking north-east, Inverness-shire. Scenery of the Moor of Rannoch. One of the outlets from the moor with Loch Ossian, a rock-basin, on its floor, where the mountains have constricted the ice-flow. The moraine-strewn floor of the moor is seen in the foreground. The wind-gap of the Slagain can be seen in the far distance. In Pleistocene times the Moor of Rannoch formed a great 'ice cauldron' from which ice flowed more or less radially to begin with but became confined to the old valleys as time progressed.
