Glacial landscapes of East Lothian
Conventionally, glacial landforms are classified according to
East Lothian is a glaciated lowland that provides many classic examples of landforms of both erosion and deposition.

The flanks of the Lammermuir Hills show magnificent systems of meltwater channels, often with large accumulations of sand and gravel forming kame-like hills at their mouths.
