Gordon MacKay

As a 2nd year BSc(Hons)Geoscience student with the OU & Project Manager for Scottish Water, with home in Evanton, I am out West most weeks so have plenty of time to indulge in the awe and wonder geological 'time travel' offers. Greater than man's works in Egypt or Angkhor Watt; of greater antiquity than the Alps, Yosemite, or even Everest, Suilven stands aloof: a knot of defiance against the ages. I salute your advocacy and the stewardship you eloquently represent! Thanks!

Hi Malcom. I have just put down your book after a few days of solid reading. It feels strange to look out of my window (Bristol) and not see the looming Precambrian mountains in the distance. I'm already planning a fortnight off work to take in all the Geological sights. Many thanks for the inspiration. I'll tread as carefully as I can!

I came upon your book from a review in Down to Earth. May I say what a joy to read a real geology tale with just the right amount of comment and science. Just one comment- you use Photo and map of Greyfriars church but no acknowledgement to the publisher -Friends of Greyfriars. Regards Ian Mathieson Director Saqqara Geophysical Survey Project (Scotland's archaeological site in Egypt)

Thanks for producing an excellent book. Been visiting the area for 30 years.Friends have wanted to borrow my copy - they can buy their own! As for windfarms, the less the better. I live in south Lake District and am slowly being surrounded by them,a waste of public money ect.
