The Dalradian is a geological term describing a series of metamorphic rocks, typically in the high ground lying southeast of the Great Glen of Scotland (the Grampians). It was named after the old Celtic region of Dál Riata (Dalriada) by the geologist, Sir A Geikie, in , and the term now covers a range of metamorphic rocks from slates.   The structural evolution of the Dalradian of the Central Highlands of Scotland - Volume 78 Issue 1 - J.

Reactions defining Barrovian and Buchan isograds are listed and figured and the importance of textural and chemical disequilibrium discussed. The effect of rock composition on the isograds is Cited by: Vein-hosted gold mineralisation occurs throughout the Dalradian supergroup in Scotland. The formation mechanisms of the Cononish deposit are unclear and poorly defined.

When the Romans left Scotland, in the 4th century, they left behind (unconquered) the iron-age tribes of northern Scotland who had been given names such as Picti, Caledonii and Epidii. By the 6th century, the tribes had united as the kingdom of the Picts, established in the mountains. The Port Askaig Formation (Fm.) is a thick glaciogenic succession within the Dalradian Supergroup that consists of over m of variably dolomitic diamictite, conglomerate, sandstone mudstone and minor dolomite, and is bounded by mixed siliciclastic–carbonate successions of the Islay (Lossit) and Bonahaven formations. The Dalradian rocks of the north-east Grampian Highlands of Scotland. Gregory () also included a description of the unit in his book on Dalradian Geology. Both authors failed to attribute a glacial origin to the beds, interpreting them as pebbly calcareous by:

The Dalradian rocks of Scotland: An introduction Article in Proceedings of the Geologists Association (s 1–2):3–82 January with Reads How we measure 'reads'. ”Dalradian” is the name given to a series of metamorphic rocks found in both Scotland and Ireland. One unit, known as the “Boulder Bed,’ is thought to be of glacial origin and generally is correlated with the bodies of similar origin in the Eocambrian of Scandinavia; sedimentation may . Either way, the Scoti, or Scots, remained a force in their part of Scotland from before until after The last King of Dalriada was Kenneth I, who went on to gain control of the Pictish crown in and merge the crowns of the Scots and the Picts to make a single kingdom, Alba: what we would today call Scotland - though its borders took centuries more to define. The book is about the geography of Scotland and how that influences the water sources for scotch whisky. It turns out Scotland's geology is pretty varied between very old ( million years) and new (60 million years), with large faults that divide the country into different areas, rift valleys, metamorphosed Dalradian rocks, schists, volcanic.
