The area between Loch Lomond and Stirling is home to some of the most diverse landscapes in Central Scotland. There is flat agricultural land around Stirling, volcanic hills and the rugged Highlands with lochs and rocky summits.
This booklet shows you how this diversity reflects the underlying geology. It describes how the landscapes of the area developed over many millions of years. Above all, this is a classic area to see the dramatic effects of ice, which has played a huge role in shaping the scenery you see today.
Written by experts and beautifully illustrated, this booklet contains clear explanations, simple diagrams and useful information on where to visit.
