Truncated spurs are rounded areas of land which have been cut off when glaciers move through the main valley. It occurs when the glacier is unable to past the interlocking spurs and so simply cuts through them by processes of erosion. They are often round at the top but steep at the bottom.
E.g. – Devil’s Point in the Cairngorms (as shown above)
