Description: Gart, Callander, Perthshire. A close-up of a very large glacial erratic. This ice-scoured boulder of Old Red Sandstone conglomerate occurs in the outwash gravels of the Loch Lomond Readvance glacier. See also D03324. Due to its very large size and weight the boulder would have been deposited at the ice front of the retreating glacier and not as a meltwater deposit on the outwash plain.
