In Scotland - the 600 miles between the northernmost Shetland island and the Mull of Galloway in the south contain some of the most interesting geology and most varied landscapes in Europe. This variety was the inspiration for a tradition of geological investigation that stretches back to the earliest Earth scientists. The origins of the Scotland that is known today lie in five quite distinct geological histories. This book takes the reader on a tour of each of these regions in turn - starting with the Northwest Highlands and Outer Hebrides - which contain some of the oldest rocks on Earth - through the mountain terrains of the Highlands and Uplands to the Lowlands - and then the fringes of the North Sea. One section describes the volcanic provinces of Scotland - another deals with the effects of the Ice Ages - while a final section looks at Scotlands natural resources.
