Collapsed screes in secluded place (6)


I believe the answer is:


'secluded place' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'collapsed screes' is the wordplay.
'collapsed' indicates anagramming the letters.
'screes' with letters rearranged gives 'RECESS'.

'in' is the link.

(Other definitions for recess that I've seen before include "Small niche or court holiday" , "Niche; temporary suspension" , "Alcove - holiday" , "Alcove for remission of business" , "Suspension of a session for a rest" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
