The western seaboard of Scotland (together with Northern Ireland) was the last part of the UK to suffer a geological event that involved the transfer of a substantial amount of heat from the mantle into the crust; this occurred during the opening of the North Atlantic Ocean, around 60 million years ago. The resulting voluminous magmatism.   The first geological map of Scotland (one of the first geological maps in the world), by Louis Albert Necker de Saussure in , did not differentiate the Dalradian rocks from the Moine of the Northern Highlands or the Lewisian of the Hebridean Terrane, all of which were described as ‘primitive rocks stratified as gneiss, mica slate and clay Cited by: Scottish literature is literature written in Scotland or by Scottish includes works in English, Scottish Gaelic, Scots, Brythonic, French, Latin, Norn or other languages written within the modern boundaries of Scotland.. The earliest extant literature written in what is now Scotland, was composed in Brythonic speech in the sixth century and has survived as part of Welsh literature.

Abstract Anatectic migmatites of contrasting structural style are found adjacent to the contacts of the Ballachulish Igneous Complex, Argyllshire, Scotland. On the east flank, evidence for migmatization is largely restricted to the local development of millimetre‐centimetre scale Kfs + Qtz‐rich leucocratic segregations, which accompany fragmentation of brittle hornfels layers and ductile. Peat is extensively developed throughout the Northern Highlands and many bogs especially in the northern part of the mainland and in the Outer Isles have immense reserves (Second Report of the Scottish Peat Committee, ). Detailed studies of the peat deposits have been made by the Macaulay Institute for Soil Research, Craigiebuckler, Aberdeen. Details of events organised by the CSRG can be found in the calendar below. Talks are held at various locations in Glasgow and Edinburgh. All event details will be posted on the webpage prior to the event. Meetings generally start at pm with tea and coffee from pm. All welcome.

The unradiogenic Pb isotope analyses could not have been derived from this source or from an upper crustal source or from a mixture of both. Clearly an additional component is required which is old, and U depleted.
