Abstract This report describes the micromorphology of samples prepared from Quaternary glaciogenic sediments exposed in Drumbeg Quarry, near Drymen, Loch Lomond, Scotland. The work forms part of the Tills Engineering geology studies of the Physical Properties and Behaviour of UK Rocks and Soils Project within the Physical Hazards Programme. The first part of the report provides the background information on the Quaternary geology of the Drymen area. This is followed by a section describing the detailed micromorphology of seven large format thin sections of the variably deformed sands, silts and diamictons exposed in Section A of Drumbeg Quarry.
