Moats of Craan
by barryd  30 Dec 2011
This area is called 'The Moats of Craan' - from the various tors on this part of the ridge. There's an interesting area some way NNE of this, down the mountainside. It's the makings of a small coum and in fact there are two or three depressions, the largest of which is about 2-3 metres deep with streams running into it in winter. However the base seems to be rocky under the sedge and bog and the water dissapears to emerge further down hill. This area is called 'The Fleurs of Craan' - maybe Floors but pronounced Fleur.
