Abstract: While Davis et al. provide convincing evidence for dynamic support of modern topography in NW Scotland, we take issue with their claims that the spatial distribution of Cenozoic denudation correlates poorly with the pattern of upper crustal shortening, and that the magnitude of shortening is insufficient to cause the observed denudation. We disagree with Davis et al.'s map of denudation, which forms the basis of their claims, and believe that their conclusions seriously downplay the widely documented contribution of crustal shortening to Cenozoic denudation of many areas of the British Isles.
