Glen Rosa is a good example of the action of Glaciation on the landscape of Scotland. In the past, a thick layer of ice covered the country and when the resulting glaciers slowly flowed downhill, the immense weight of ice that they carried gradually carved out the characteristic 'U-shaped valley' structures that can be seen today all over the Scottish Highlands. The U-shape is evident in this image, taken looking up the glen.
