About this book

Eigg is a small island, but it displays a remarkable variety of geology in a beautiful setting, in a way that is readily appreciated by those without any special knowledge of geology. There is an inspiring precedent in the visit of that self-taught polymath, Hugh Miller, in the 1840s. The Geology of Eigg includes a comprehensive introduction to the geology of the island, and sets Eigg in its regional context. It describes the sedimentary layers, with varied and interesting Mesozoic fossils, found around the northern coast, the over-lying basaltic lava flows, and the impressive Sgurr ridge with its rich and once-controversial geological story.

There are seven excursions that explore just about every corner of the island and cover all aspects of Eigg's geology. These include straight forward beach and coastal excursions suitable for all, and more strenuous and remote explorations that will appeal to those with an interest in the geology of the Hebrides..
