The high temperatures and pressures at the depth these rocks were once located has lead to the growth of large crystals with the metamorphic banding.

Tiree, the sunshine isle, can be found off the Atlantic coast of Scotland. It is one of the Inner Hebrides. The ever changing sea, the incredible number of bird species, pretty cottages and friendly atmosphere ensures tourists return to the island. For details begin at the Panoramic Photographs pages.
