During the course of this study encouragement and assistance was provided from many sources. I am particularly grateful to my supervisor Colin Donaldson who proposed this project, and with a mixture of practical advice and instruction helped to make my Ph.D work in St. Andrews a very enjoyable and profitable experience. I would also like to express my appreciation to Ed. Stephans who gave considerable help in many areas, in particular with geochemical analysis and computing. Technical assistance with various aspects of this work was given by Andy MacKie, Donald Herd, Jim Allen, Angus Calder, Alisdair Reed and R. Bachelor. Isotopic analyses were carried out at S.U.R.R.C. East Kilbride under the supervision of Alan Dickin and Tony Fallick. Considerable logistic support during fieldwork was provided by members of the Nature Conservancy Council on Rhum, in particular I would like to thank the former Warden Laughton Johnson for all his help. Many of the ideas presented in this thesis were arrived at after discussion, both in the field and elsewhere, with fellow colleagues; Peter Holden, John Reavy, Lesley Evans, Graham Oliver, Ron Watkins, Nick Smith and Henry Emeleus are thanked for their various contributions. Kit Findley and Lesley Bickell typed various parts of the thesis. Finally I would like to express my appreciation to my Mother for all her help and encouragement, and to Marie-Christine, who besides typing several chapters provided invaluable moral support during the latter stages of this undertaking.
