The paper now presented embodies an account of a cauldron-subsidence which affected an area roughly oval in shape, and measuring not less than 5 miles from side to side. We show that the subsidence took place in at least two stages, and that it was accompanied in a complementary fashion by the uprise of a series of marginal intrusions. In the first instance the nature of the volcanic succession in Glen Coe will be dealt with, its ...
