Abstract

The British Isles are almost unrivalled in their diversity of geology and northern Scotland is arguably the richest of all. With a long history of training generations of earth science students, the region is increasingly a draw for geotourists, both witting and unwitting - many driving the much-publicised “North Coast 500” route. Inspired by this rich resource comes a welcome reappearance of a popular book, updated with new science that builds on two centuries of discovery.
