The editors acknowledge the substantial contributions made by Iain Allison and the late Frank May who co-edited the first ‘Moine fieldguide’. The authors of the various excursions acknowledge discussions with colleagues too numerous to mention, and also the role of the Natural Environment Research Council who funded studentships which allowed much of the research reported here to be carried out.

The aim of this excursion guide is to allow geological field parties to see the wide variety of rocks and structures that occur within the outcrop of the Moine Supergroup, as well as the Moine Thrust Zone that separates these rocks from those of the Caledonian foreland to the NW. The guide has been written for those who have some previous knowledge of geology: informed amateurs, undergraduate students and professional geologists. Books that provide useful background reading include ''The Mapping of Geological Structures ''by Ken McClay, and ''The Field Description of Metamorphic Rocks ''by Norman Fry, which are both published by John Wiley & Sons as part of their ‘Geological Field Guide Series’. Two other publications that provide much useful background information are the 2002 edition of the ''Geology of Scotland'', published by the Geological Society of London and edited by N. Trewin, and the British Geological Survey ''Northern Highlands Regional Guide ''published in 1995.
