Description: Looking westwards across the River Roy towards Leana Mhor (left) and Beinn Iaruinn (centre), Glen Roy, Inverness-shire. The Parallel Roads of Glen Roy. Part of a panorama with C02346, C02347, C02349. (Description is for the full panorama.) The three successive lake terraces ('roads') at levels of 260, 325 and 350 m. O.D. respectively. The extent of view is about 4.8 km. The shorelines have commonly been formed by erosion at the back and gravel deposition at the front. At some localities the roads are cut in rock, a factor explained by the combined action of frost and wave action at lake level. This was greatly assisted by prior breakage due to slope deformation and by frost action earlier in the Loch Lomond Stadial.
