The Dalsetter Erratic
The Dalsetter Erratic
This party of geologists is admiring the large boulder in the centre, which is of such a distinctive rock that it has been possible to pinpoint exactly where it came from before the glaciers of the Ice Age dumped it in Shetland - from Tonsberg, near Larvik in Norway!

For a closer view of the erratic itself see HU4016 : Dalsetter erratic.
