I am a consulting engineer. Your book is one of the best popular science books I have read. I am now in semi-retirement and about to start an OU Master's degree in Earth Science. Your book had something to do with this - also living in Scotland (with a holiday apartment in the Cowal peninsula) I am regularly gobsmacked by the effects of the Younger Dryas, as shown in Glen Croe on the way up to Rest-and-be-thankful.

What a great book. I took myself up to Sandwood bay to photograph the area. Then walked on to the light at Cape Wrath. I love the place, except when the RAF bomb lumps out the rocky islands off Balnakeil bay. I now walk there every year pretending I know what I'm looking at.

Best book I have ever read, for an amateur and a true lover of Scottish stones, wishing to know more..... Deirdre Nicholls Sculptor

Cor, that guy Meikle is a bit fierce. God knows why he thinks you support the hydrocarbon lobby - you might be in favour of tidal power as I am. You carefully don't say. But wind power is clearly inefficient and an awful blow to the environment, and merely benefits the developers. Alistair
