Scotland is justly famed for its wonderful scenery of mountains, lochs, islands, wild rocky places and sandy beaches. All this is evidence of an exciting geographical history which began 3,500 million years ago and is still continuing. The sheer diversity of Scotland's landforms are the physical reminders of a fascinating journey through time. They reveal that the land that makes up Scotland today has travelled the world, and has not always even belonged to one single continental landmass. In Land of Mountain and Flood three eminent Earth scientists explain Scotland's place in the geological history of the planet, unravelling and explaining the present-day landscape and how it came to be the way it is.

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.
