General Note:
Mount Hillaby, whose peak located in Scotland District of the Saint Andrew’s parish, is the highest elevation in Barbados at 340 meters (1115 feet) above sea level. Mount Hillaby, whose soil is composed of sandstone and chalk, is the summit of a mountain range that stretches from Trinidad to Puerto Rico. The Scotland District is the only location in the Caribbean where this mountain range is above water. This range is an example of an accretionary prism which is formed from sediments on the ocean floor pushing together at the junction of two tectonic plates. From Mount Hillaby’s peak viewers can see the beaches of Bathsheba and Chalky Mount, a range of hills with a jagged profile that contains clay deposits used by local potters. Slide labeled Barb 23.
