Summary:A combined Nd- and Sr-isotope study of Caledonian granites in Scotland and N England (Strontian, Foyers, Ben Nevis, Etive, Ben Vuirich, Shap, Strichen and Longmanhill) demonstrates the importance of remobilized continental crust in their provenance. Limits are placed on the involvement of contemporary mantle-derived material. [F.B.A.]
