Yell is a sparsely-populated island in the north of Shetland and is separately geologically from neighbouring Unst and Mainland by two major faults. Yell has been commonly regarded by geologists en route to the more varied geology of Unst as of little particular interest, being merely gneiss covered by peat. This attitude has been largely due to the absence of a good account of the geology. The painstaking work of Professor Flinn, the results of which are contained in this memoir, shows that the geology of Yell is both interesting and instructive, and of more than just local interest.
