I copied this from an evolutionary source, my Sigma Xi newsletter:

Last glacier in Scotland may have melted about 400 years ago
Scotland's last glacier may have melted away much more recently than previously thought, according to researchers at the University of Dundee. A group of undergraduate students discovered what appeared to be glacial moraine ridges while doing fieldwork in the Cairngorm Mountains and took samples to test for age. The researchers discovered that the last glacier melted within the past 400 years. Previous studies pegged the last glaciers at about 11,500 years ago. Amazing Planet (1/22)
