New insights into the Neoproterozoic geology of the Shetland Islands, northernmost Scotland, reflect the operation of the supercontinent cycle. Sedimentary sequences accumulated in this part of Laurentia at ~1.0 Ga as a result of the erosion of the Grenville belt, the culminating collision event that formed Rodinia. Their subsequent deformation and metamorphism is inferred to result from terrane accretion events along a peripheral or exterior orogen that developed along the Laurentian margin of Rodinia.
