A Photographic Guide to Shetland's Geology

Regular price £15.99

This book is the first photographic guide to the geology of the Shetland Island's. Shetland's landscape, its hills and beaches, cliffs and stacks, are not only places of extraordinary beauty but have locked up within them secrets from an ancient past. What is particularly amazing about Shetland is that many of these treasures are so readily accessible. It is the author's ambition that this book will not only be a rich source of information, but will help both residents and visitors understand and the see the islands in a new way. The place where each photograph was taken or where a rock sample was recovered from, is mentioned in the accompanying caption, and there are several maps highlighting the principal geological sites and places of interest.
