A highland landscape is described before, during and after glaciation. Around 10,000 years ago, Scotland was in the grip of an ice age with massive ice sheets and glaciers covering the landscape. These transformed a landscape formed by rivers to a glaciated landscape with sharper, deeper and more dramatic features.

Use as a basic introduction to features of glaciation. Students should outline the differences between a pre-glacial and post-glacial landscape, using comparative tables or by annotating screenshots of the before and after diagrams featured. Labels should correctly identify key features and dominant processes. This can then lead into a map reading exercise, where students identify the type of landscape through the features they can see.
