about this item

The land that was to become Scotland has travelled across the globe over the last 3,000 million years – from close to the South Pole to its current position. During these travels, there were many continental collisions, creating mountain belts as high as the present-day Himalayas. Our climate too has changed dramatically over the last 3 billion years from the deep freeze of the Ice Age to scorching heat of the desert. And within a relatively short time – geologically speaking, we will plunge back into another ice age. In Set in Stone, Alan McKirdy traces Scotland’s amazing geological journey.
