Abstract [en]

The hinge region of a major anticlinal fold structure in the SW Scottish Highlands was located in the eastern part of the Isle of Islay. The structure plunges gently NNW, with the hinge line measuring 02/026. The hinge region was located by mapping a 2km2 area comprised of deformed Neoproterozoic metasedimentary and metacarbonate rocks, and plotting the measurements on stereograms.

The data collected was also analysed to attempt to asses evidence of refolding, and it is suggested in this thesis that the area displays evidence of at least one subsequent refolding event.
