Landscape fashioned by geology - Rum and the Small Isles

Landscape fashioned by geology - Rum and the Small Isles

For such a small island, the range of landscapes on the Island of Rum is truly remarkable - from the jagged peaks of Askival and Hallival, to the rounded hills of Orval and Ard Nev in the west, and the low "stepped" topography north of Kinloch Glen. The book shows how these features can be attributed to a geological history that stretches back nearly 3000 million years and includes deserts, ocean floors, volcanoes and glaciers.
