About this book

The tranquil appearance of the city of Edinburgh nestling between the surrounding hills and the undulating countryside of West Lothian belies their dramatic volcanic past. The Lothian landscape took over 400 million years to reach its present shape. This book tells the story of its journey from erupting volcanoes, through rivers, seas and ice-caps, to the peaceful parks, restored quarries and level playing fields we see today.
