Description: Looking westwards across the River Roy, towards Bohuntine Hill, lower end of Glen Roy, Inverness-shire. The Parallel Roads of Glen Roy, left part of a panorama with C02345. The three successive lake terraces ('roads') at levels of 260, 325 and 350 m. O.D. respectively. The principal lakes, the shorelines of which are seen, drained across cols that controlled their levels. All are associated with the maximum or near maximum positions of Loch Lomond Readvance glaciers. Caol Lairig, the gap between the two hills, is an important site with a variety of glacial landforms.
