Dolines also known as solution hollows in a karst landscape at Glencar. A doline is a small to medium sized closed depression, a few metres to a few hundred metres in diameter and depth. Dolines are formed by slow, concentrated solutional removal of rock in an area, from the surface downwards, or by the collapse of overlying rock into a cave or chamber beneath.
