Assynt, West Sutherland, Scotland was recently voted People’s Choice in the Landscape Category of The Geological Society’s 100 Great Geosites. It is famous for its landscape (Inverpolly Nature Reserve) and its remarkable mountains (Quinag, Canisp, Suilven, Cùl Mòr, Stac Pollaidh. These isolated peaks (inselbergs) are made of sandstones of the Torridon Group, deposited by ancient rivers a billion years ago.

These deposits rest in turn on the even older Lewisian basement, which form the characteristic “cnoc and lochan” landscape. Collectively these rocks form the outer edge of the Scottish crust that has been caught up in the 500-400 million year old Caledonian mountain building episode. The boundary lies just to the east of the inselbergs.

Today is World Mental Health Day and it’s worth remembering that mental illness -

Can happen to anyone.
Cannot be ‘thought’ better. 
Is an illness not a choice. (The clue’s in the name!)
Is nothing to be ashamed of. 
Does not mean you’re weak. 
Does not define you. 
Is not an adjective. 
Deserves to be treated as seriously as a physical illness.

Dear followers,

Have you eaten today?

Did you take any meds you need?

How about hydration?

Maybe a nap if you need one?

You are awesome.

Keep it up.
