Scotland’s mountain landscapes are remarkably diverse, encompassing the isolated summits of
the far northwest, the serrated ridges of Skye, the tor-studded high plateau of the Cairngorms and the
rolling hills of the Southern Uplands. Born on ancient continents and uplifted by tectonic forces, the
mountains of Scotland have been sculpted by successive glaciers and ice sheets, landslides, frost, wind and
rivers. Colin Ballantyne takes readers on a journey through time to explore not only the long-term
evolution of Scotland’s mountains but also the ways in which the mountain landscapes have changed since
the end of the Ice Age and the various processes that are continually altering the mountain landscape
today.
