The district is geologically important for its position at the north-eastern onshore and of the Great Glen Fault Zone, one of the most conspicuous geological features in Britain. The whole region was variously glaciated during the Pleistocene ice ages. The present topography and surface deposits are a legacy of such times and establish the district as one of the most important in documenting British Pleistocene events, especially in sea level.
