Since the last edition of this guide our perception of geology in general and Scottish geology in particular has changed dramatically. New theories on the origin of continents and oceans have been postulated which are stimulating changes in the way we look at rocks and try to reconstruct their geological history. It is important therefore that the geology we study locally be no longer divorced from these all-embracing theories. Therefore, the orientation of parts of the new edition of this guide has been changed: particular observations and the explanations of them are now related to the wider geological regimes under which the rocks formed.
