It offers the opportunity to study igneous, metamorphic and structurally complex rocks, indicating their natural settings in Scotland: the deformed rocks of the Dalradian basin, the Caledonian granites, and the Highland Border Complex. The materials are presented as a series of PDFs. Each file represents a section of the book.
