    Abstract

    Radiocarbon ages on shells of the high arctic marine mollusc Portlandia arctica collected from a glaciomarine bed immediately within the terminal position of the former Loch Lomand Readvance Creran glacier and probably overridden by it suggest that its maximum extent was reached during the second half (10 500-10 000 BP) of the Loch Lomond stade period and possibly as late as 10 000 BP. Arctic marine faunas which flourished in the vicinity of this tidewater glacier and the glacier of similar age which occupied Loch Lomond may likewise date from late in the Loch Lomond stade. -Authors
