Almost all the localities lie on the southern coast of the Ross [[Media:EGS_MOI_Fig_01_01.jpg|(Fig. 1.1)]]. Access is most suited to cars and minibuses. Coaches should not be used without local advice. Itineraries A and B focus on Localities 1.1-1.13, and Itineraries C and D describe Localities 1.15-1.23 [[Media:EGS_MOI_Fig_01_01.jpg|(Fig. 1.1)]]. Itineraries A and B describe a traverse through the units of the Shiaba (= Morar) Group and the younger Assapol (= Glenfinnan) Group. Itineraries C and D traverse the Assapol Group on the western limb, and within the core, of the regional F3 Assapol Synform [[Media:EGS_MOI_Fig_01_02.jpg|(Fig. 1.2)]] and includes various lithologies not seen in itineraries A and B. Two additional localities (24 and 25) focus on relationships between the Ross of Mull Granite and the Moine rocks in its envelope.
