Abstract

A series of lateral moraines and other ice-marginal features total nearly 30 km in length, and indicate the former existence of a lobe of ice nearly 25 km in width across Lochs Gairloch and Ewe and the surrounding low ground. The ice-marginal features are interpreted as marking the limit of a glacial readvance that took place in this area sometime between the Late Devensian maximum of l7 000-l8 000 BP and the onset of the Lateglacial Interstadial. The name Wester Ross Readvance is suggested. -from Authors
