Data for the rare earth elements (REE) Ce, La and Y are presented for rock and drainage samples from three late Caledonian alkaline intrusions of north and north-west Scotland. The neighbouring Loch Borralan and Loch Ailsh intrusions were investigated in the late 1980's for the platinum group elements (PGE), and samples were also analysed for the REE. The Ben Loyal Complex, situated 50 km to the north-east, was investigated for the REE on the basis of archived mineralogical and geochemical information. These investigations were carried out as part of the Mineral Reconnaissance Programme (MRP) and commissioned by the Department of Trade and Industry.
