Burn of VAT a Scottish glacial pothole 16.000 years old

 
 
The Burn O Vat on Royal Deeside is a deep bowl gouged out by water and was carved out 16,000 years ago by a glacier. The melting glacial water formed a pothole, which has filled in over the last 13,000 years resulting in the Burn Of Vat feature as we now see it.<br />
During the 17th century it was used as a hiding place by a Scottish cattle thief and outlaw called Patrick Gilroy Macgregor.<br />
