Geoff But why is the roller coaster so????

Hello Peter. If you are referring to the geology of the terrain I don’t know. The road runs parallel to the south shore of Loch Ness, so I suspect the ground has been subjected to some extreme movement in the creation of the Great Glen. Regards Geoff.

Geoff the ridges are piles of glacial morrian left behind as the ice melted about 10,000 years ago.

Thanks for the information Peter. It would be interesting to know what our landscape would look like without the influence of the the ice. Where I live in south Bedfordshire we have some attractive hills as a legacy. Regards Geoff.

Geoff Without the effects of ice and erosion Everest would be 80000ft high the Alps 45000ft and the highlands of Scotland 30000ft. And Sir Edmond would have been quite happy to climb Mt Cook as that too would be 45000ft high.

Crikey Peter, that’s an awesome amount of material which has been repositioned somewhere! Geoff.
