Scottish national identity is a term referring to the sense of national identity, as embodied in the shared and characteristic culture, languages and traditions, of the Scottish people.. Although the various dialects of Gaelic, the Scots language and Scottish English are distinctive, people associate them all together as Scottish with a shared identity, as well as a regional or local identity. The Highland Boundary Fault runs past Bute and through the northern part of Arran, so from a geological perspective some of the islands are in the Highlands and some in the Central Lowlands. As a result, Arran is sometimes referred to as "Scotland in miniature" and the island is a popular destination for geologists, who come to see intrusive igneous landforms such as sills and dykes as well as.

Local Rocks. Within easy reach of Glasgow there lies a rich variety of igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks. These rocks were laid down during a period of over million years, starting in the Neoproterozoic period ( to Ma) and finishing in the Triassic period ( Ma to Ma).

Geology of the northern part of the Strath Ossian Granite, Scotland by W. G. Henderson Download PDF EPUB FB2

The geology of Scotland is unusually varied for a country of its size, with a large number of differing geological features. There are three main geographical sub-divisions: the Highlands and Islands is a diverse area which lies to the north and west of the Highland Boundary Fault; the Central Lowlands is a rift valley mainly comprising Palaeozoic formations; and the Southern Uplands, which.

Scotland’s geology is world-famous, both for the rich variety of our rocks and the place they hold in the development of new ideas. The rocks of Scotland have formed over a time span of Geology of the northern part of the Strath Ossian Granite of years, with a series of different plate tectonic events over time resulting in a wide variety of rock types.

CHACKSFIELD's 6 research works with citations and reads, including: Geology of the Glen Roy district: memoir forgeological sheet 63W (Scotland). The western seaboard of Scotland (together with Northern Ireland) was the last part of the UK to suffer a geological event that involved the transfer of a substantial amount of heat from the mantle into the crust; this occurred during the opening of the North Atlantic Ocean, around 60 million years ago.

The resulting voluminous magmatism. The first geological map of Scotland (one of the first geological maps in the world), by Louis Albert Necker de Saussure indid not differentiate the Dalradian rocks from the Moine of the Northern Highlands or the Lewisian of the Hebridean Terrane, all of which were described as ‘primitive rocks stratified as gneiss, mica slate and clay Cited by: Scottish literature is literature written in Scotland or Geology of the northern part of the Strath Ossian Granite Scottish includes works in English, Scottish Gaelic, Scots, Brythonic, French, Latin, Norn or other languages written within the modern boundaries of Scotland.

The earliest extant literature written in what is now Scotland, was composed in Brythonic speech in the sixth century and has survived as part of Welsh literature. The basement rocks of the Northern Highlands consist of gneisses of the Lewisian Complex ().They are the products of repeated deformation, metamorphism and migmatisation of early Precambrian crust of uncertain origin, cut by acid and basic igneous intrusions.

Abstract Anatectic migmatites of contrasting structural style are found adjacent to the contacts of the Ballachulish Igneous Complex, Argyllshire, Scotland. On the east flank, evidence for migmatization is largely restricted to the local development of millimetre‐centimetre scale Kfs + Qtz‐rich leucocratic segregations, which accompany fragmentation of brittle hornfels layers and ductile.

Peat is extensively developed throughout the Northern Highlands and many bogs especially in the northern part of the mainland and in the Outer Isles have immense reserves (Second Report of the Scottish Peat Committee, ).

Detailed studies of the peat deposits have been made by the Macaulay Institute for Soil Research, Craigiebuckler, Aberdeen. Details of events organised by the CSRG can be found in the calendar below.

(The Strath Ossian granite is a mantle-de- rived granite with some evidence of upper crustal contamination.) The unradiogenic Pb isotope analyses could not have been derived from this source or from an upper crustal source or from a mixture of both.

Clearly an additional component is required which is old, and U depleted. The northern Grampian Highlands are dominated by a widespread and thick succession of Neoproterozoic siliciclastic deposits referred to as the Grampian Group ().Most interpretations of the regional geological relationships have suggested that the strata were deposited upon an orogenic unconformity, now largely obscured by a zone of ductile shearing at or near the base of the group.

In the Northern Highlands metallic ores have been worked Extensively only at Strontian, where veins containing galena associated with sphalerite were mined between and This region has since been the subject of several mineral surveys, including prospect- drilling.

Between and early the Strontian Main Vein was worked for baryte, galena and sphalerite; subsequently small. Shetland displays the geology of northern Scotland in miniature, offering the chance to see ancient Lewisian Gneisses, million year old rocks of the Moine Supergroup and younger Dalradian rocks ( million year old), in the space of a few kilometres.

On Unst and Fetlar there occurs a slice of oceanic crust and upper mantle rocks. The main granodiorite has not been directly dated but has been suggested to be coeval with the granodiorite phase of the adjacent Strath Ossian Complex (Anderson, ).

The Allt Crom Granite (78) is an elongate body lying between the Corrieyairack and Findhorn granodiorites. Recent mapping has shown that the southern part consists mainly of. At around million years ago, at the start of the Devonian period, there was the intrusion of major granite plutons within the Southern Uplands such as the Criffell granite.

The granite in these masses was derived from the actual partial melting of rocks lower within the crust, where the heat and deformation caused by the continental. Because of the variations in the geology and geological history in different regions the colour scheme used and the way the rock units are subdivided in individual accounts may vary.

The regional geological summaries for England, Wales and Northern Ireland form part of BGS's wider work on better communicating the geology of the UK. The Grampian Mountains (Am Monadh in Gaelic) are one of the three major mountain ranges in Scotland, occupying a considerable portion of the Scottish Highlands in northern Scotland.

The other major mountain ranges in Scotland are the Northwest Highlands and the Southern Grampian range extends southwest to northeast between the Highland Boundary Fault and the Great .Northeast Scotland.

The area described in this book extends northeast from the Cairngorms, and is bounded by the Moray Firth and the North Sea. It encompasses the heather-clad mountains that provide the backdrop to the beautiful landscape of Royal Deeside and a swath of more remote, rolling hills and glens to the north that include many of the famous whisky distilleries of the region.Scottish art is the body of visual art made in what is now Scotland, or about Scottish subjects, since prehistoric times.

It forms a distinctive tradition within European art, but the political union with England has led its partial subsumation in British art. The earliest examples of art from what is now Scotland are highly decorated carved stone balls from the Neolithic period.
