This report is a compilation of information on stratabound mineralisation in the Caledonian terrain of Scotland. The location of the deposits and their host-rock lithologies are shown on the accompanying 1:l million scale map. The deposits are classified according to their chemical composition and estimated size by the use of symbols. The mineral deposit tables include aspects of host-rock lithology, metamorphic grade of the deposit, size and shape of the deposit and chemical data. A bibliography is also included of work published on the stratabound mineralisation of the Scottish Caledonides. The work forms part of the United Kingdom contribution to the International Geological Correlation Programme Project 60, "Correlation of Caledonian Stratabound Sulphides". This contribution commenced in 1974 and is presently centred on a programme of mineral reconnaissance being undertaken by the Institute of Geological Sciences for the Department of Industry. Since 1977 the topic of stratabound mineralisation has been formally established as one of the six main projects of the programme. Similar compilations have been prepared or are in the process of assembly for other segments of the fragmented Caledonian - Appalachian erogenic belt in the following countries: Norway, Sweden, East Greenland, Ireland, Canada and USA.
