Parallel Roads

Parallel Roads, a series of raised beaches one above the other, round the head and sides of Glen Roy in the west of Scotland and other similar situations. In Glen Roy they are 1,140, 1,059, and 847 feet respectively above sea-level. They were the subject of much controversy until it was suggested that the glen had been occupied by a lake supported at what is now the open mouth of the valley by glacier ice.
