About this book

The Stirling and Perth area comprises some wonderfully varied geology, from the Dalradian metamorphic rocks in the southern Highlands to a range of sedimentary and igneous rocks within the Midland Valley. The eighteen excursions in A Geological Excursion Guide to the Stirling & Perth Area guide the reader to the best geology that this region has to offer, from complex metamorphic rocks around Dunkeld, through the terrestrial old red sandstone around Perth, to the younger and more varied Carboniferous sedimentary rocks south of Stirling. The igneous rocks of the Ochil and Campsie hills are also included, and there are building stone excursions in Perth and Stirling.
