A little more about the books:

VOLUME 1:

This guide describes 12 varied excursions on Islay that tell the fascinating story of Islay’s geological past from 2 billion-year old gneiss to the Ice Age.

The geology of each walk is described at an introductory level with maps and photographs and the book also contains an introduction to geology section.

For those with some geological background there is a section describing Islay’s geological framework in more detail with some key references for further reading.

The walks range from leisurely rambles to more demanding longer excursions – most of which are readily adaptable with shorter easier options.

VOLUME 2:

This guide is a companion volume to the Guide to the Geology of Islay, first published in 2015, which described twelve geological excursions on Islay.

This new volume contains six excursions on Jura, three on Colonsay and a further four on Islay, that tell the fascinating story of their geological past from 2 billion-year-old gneiss to the Ice Age.

The geology of each excursion is explained at an introductory level with maps and photographs, and the walks range from leisurely rambles to more demanding treks and sea-kayak expeditions.
