Abstract

The AA. present 31 cosmogenic nuclide analyses of large, well-developed tors from a key locality. Because Cairngorm tors have been subject to burial by multiple glaciations, exposure has not been constant and an ice cover duration model is required to interpret nuclide data as ages. The measurements permit testing of the hypothesis of a pre-Quaternary age for Cairngorm tors
