A Geological Excursion Guide to the North-West Highlands of Scotland
edit. Kathryn M. Goodenough and Maarten Krabbendam
A Geological Excursion Guide to the North-West Highlands of Scotland describes the bedrock geology from Ullapool northwards, including many classic localities in the Moine Thrust zone and its foreland. The area largely corresponds to the North-West Highlands Geo-park. In preparation for this book, a large team was assembled to provide up-to-date interpretations of the structural relationships, sedimentology, and metamorphic history. The sixteen excursions vary from roadside stops to full-day mountain walks over rough terrain, with weather liable to sudden change. Advice is also given on access and on local accommodation and transport.
