Abstract The report describes the field observations, sampling and geotechnical laboratory results on selected Scottish till sections in the Nairn-Cawdor area, Inverness-shire, Scotland. The first part of the report introduces the project and the context of this particular work. This is followed in Part 2 by an account of the sampling and testing methods undertaken for both geotechnical characterisation in the laboratory and micromorphology analyses. Part 3 provides an account of the location details of the logged and sampled exposures and descriptions of the lithological sequences at each site. Part 4 presents details and results of the characterisation tests (particle size analyses) undertaken on the collected geotechnical samples. The results of micromorphological analyses undertaken on thin sections prepared from 'undisturbed' samples acquired from this study are being described in a separate report.
