Bowscale Tarn

  • Description

    "Cirques are giant hollows scooped out of the fellside by glacial ice. They are typically referred to as corries in Scotland, as cwms in Wales and more often as coves or combs in the Lake District. But the cirque in which Bowscale Tarn sits is un-named despite it being arguably the best example of a glacial cirque in the Lakes. The terminal moraine formed from the debris pushed downhill by the snout of the glacier can clearly be seen. From my blog" Photo by Mick Garratt, 2018.
