The Geological Society has launched a list of 100 great Geosites across the UK and Ireland, celebrating some of the most diverse and beautiful geology in the world, spanning most of geological time, from the oldest Pre-Cambrian rocks to the youngest Quarternary sediments.

Scotland is well represented, with nearly 40 of the top 100 sites, including top picks of the foreland mountains of Assynt, Siccar Point and Glencoe.
