Characteristics of glaciated landscapes

During the last ice age, ice covered a large part of the UK. This ice eroded the land producing some of the mountainous landscapes which exist today.

Glaciated upland areas in UK: Snowdonia (North Wales), Lake District/Cumbrian Mountains (North England), Loch Lomond and The Trossachs, Grampian Mountains/Cairngorns, North West Highlands (Scotland).
