The wide variety of landscapes on Mull, Iona, and their surrounding isles are well known to visitors. Flat-topped hills and steep cliffs of lava in the north contrast with the high mountains of the south that have been carved out of the roots of a huge volcano. Low-lying rounded knolls of pink granite characterise the Ross of Mull, and all around are dramatic coastal features separated in places by welcoming sandy beaches. This publication explains how it all came about.
Landscape Fashioned by Geology Series: These illustrated booklets explain how the countryside around us developed over geological time, relating familiar views to the rocks beneath. Produced jointly with the British Geological Survey.
