AbstractPollen, diatom, lithostratigraphic and radiocarbon data from five sites in northwestern Scotland provide new data from an area previously devoid of reliable and precise information on Late Devensian and Holocene sea-level changes. The sites cover a range of palaeoenvironments, indicative of diversity in coastal evolution since deglaciation. For each site and palaeoenvironment the reference water (tide) level, indicative range, age and tendency of sea-level movement of all sea-level index points are quantified to enable correlation of the diverse coastal environments. The data record patterns of relative sea-level change and tendencies of sea-level movement from 12 ka BP to 1 ka BP. This is the longest and most comprehensive published record of relative sea-level change from the area. The information is used to test the accuracy of existing models of relative sea-level change. The results are only broadly consistent with a quantitative rebound model, and there is significant disagreement with empirical models during the Late Devensian and the early Holocene. © 1995.
