The geodiversity on Arran is wide-ranging and outstanding, with close links to James Hutton, ‘the father of modern geology’. In order to demonstrate the international value of our geology, we have provided the following bibliography of peer-reviewed (and other) international publications.

We cannot provide “open access” to these – please contact to enquire regarding access to the documents listed. The following table can be downloaded as a spreadsheet.

Recent research: from 2019-23 Arran has been a study site for 20 dissertations and theses, from BA/BSc to PhD, on a huge range of topics. During the same period there were 17 peer-reviewed publications written.

Are you a student or researcher working on a project? We’d like to hear from you!
