Landscape fashioned by geology - East Lothian and the Borders

South-east Scotland displays much of the country’s scenic variety in one small region. There are volcanic hills, spectacular coastal cliffs, rugged granite hills and gently rolling lowlands.

Find out how this varied landscape was formed over 500 million years. This booklet explores the long history of south-east Scotland’s hills and plains – from North Berwick Law to the Cheviot Hills. It’s an exciting tale of colliding continents, erupting volcanoes and scouring ice flows.

Written by experts and beautifully illustrated, this booklet contains clear explanations, simple diagrams and useful information on where to visit.
