A Cauldron Subsidence

The Three Sisters

Three hundred and eighty million years ago the surface of Glen Coe collapsed as magma surged from below. The boiling rock cooled into ridges now worn down by age and passing glaciers. Waterfalls and streams tumble down from foggy peaks to the moors below. Through heather, bog myrtle and bladderwort, they make their way to the River Coe.

(Visit the Scottish Highlands. They are beautiful.)
