About this book

The rugged, wild, mountainous landscape of Rum owes its creation to a geological history that stretches back nearly 3000 million years. For such a small island the range of scenery is remarkable. Held together by the sea, Rum and its surrounding islands combine a richness of landform, colour and texture with ever-changing light and dramatic weahter. Find out how this mecca for geologists was formed over millions of years in this tale of deserts and oceans, volcanoes and glaciers.
