Another view of Glen Rosa, this time focusing on a higher area of the glen and clearly showing another characteristic glaciated feature, a 'hanging valley'. This is the high bowl-shaped corrie just underneath the skyline to the left of the centre of the photograph. Hanging valleys are formed when a smaller, tributary glacier flow meets the main glacier flow that has carved out the central glen to create the main U-shaped valley.
