BGS/SNH Landscapes fashioned by geology series - David Stephenson & Kathryn Goodenough ISBN : 1853975066 The area around Ben Nevis and Glencoe is one of the most popular in the Scottish Highlands. The shapely peaks of the Mamores, fashioned from 700 million year-old sandstones, contrast with the towering near-vertical cliffs of Glen Coe and the north face of Ben Nevis, which exhume the remains of 400 million year-old volcanoes. But the mountains, deep glens and sheltered sea-lochs that we see today were carved by glaciers in the last 2 million years. A must for anyone exploring the area.
