The Midland Valley is in structural terms a graben, and is approximately 80 km wide, bounded in the north by the Highland Boundary Fault and in the south by the Southern Upland Fault. The graben structure developed as such in the Devonian, but its location and dimensions were determined by crustal events which happened in the Lower Palaeozoic.
