Description:

Scotland is justly famed for its magnificent scenery - mountains, lochs, islands, wild rocky places and sandy beaches. All this is evidence of a wonderfully exciting geological history which began 3,500 billion years ago and is not yet finished: land and sea are rising, formations are shifting and slopes are moving. The sheer diversity of Scotland's rocks and landforms are the physical reminders of a fascinating physical and chronological journey which shows that the land that makes up Scotland today has travelled from the Equator to the South Pole and back north again, and has not always even belonged to the same continental landmass. This book is for anyone who is interested in the natural world around them and who wishes to develop a good knowledge about the original formation of the country.
