Landscape fashioned by geology - Mull and Iona

Landscape fashioned by geology - Mull and Iona

The wide variety of landscapes on Mull, Iona and their surrounding isles are well known to visitors. Flat-topped hills and steep cliffs of lava in the north contrast with the high mountains of the south that have been carved out of the roots of a huge volcano. Low-lying rounded knolls of pink granite characterise the Ross of Mull, and all around are dramatic coastal features separated in places by welcoming sandy beaches. This book explains how it all came about.
