About this book

A Walking Guide to the Geology of Islay describes 12 varied excursions on Islay that tell the fascinating story of Islay's geological past from 2 billion-year old gneiss to the Ice Age. The geology of each walk is described at an introductory level with maps and photographs and A Walking Guide to the Geology of Islay also contains an introduction to geology section. For those with some geological background there is a section describing Islay's geological framework in more detail with some key references for further reading. The walks range from leisurely rambles to more demanding longer excursions – most of which are readily adaptable with shorter easier options.
