In this map, it can be seen that the altitude is very uneven, and much of the land in Glenurquhart is not suitable for cultivation. The diagrams of trees also indicate that the area is not suitable for farming.

This gives only a very rough idea of the type of terrain and soil. However, the large number of hill lochs gives a suggestion as to the topography and soil. It is common for Lochs to pool up near clay soil, which is dense and water cannot permeate and leak from. This often means that hill lochs are close to marshlands.
