Description: Looking westwards across the River Roy, towards Leana Mhor, lower end of Glen Roy, Inverness-shire. The Parallel Roads of Glen Roy, left part of a panorama with C02344. The three successive lake terraces ('roads') at levels of 260, 325 and 350 m. O.D. respectively. The shorelines were formed in a rising sequence and then a falling sequence (325 m. and 260 m.). It is thought that drainage when it occurred between levels was catastrophic, at the lower level it may have been by sub-glacial flow similar to 'glacier burst' (jokulhlaup) as seen in Iceland today.
