The development of Mesolithic studies in Scotland is reviewed and set in context, Lacaille's Stone Age in Scotland, published in 1954, can be seen to mark the culmination of the first phase of Mesolithic research. Subsequent changing perceptions and the recent intensification of fieldwork are discussed, with a footnote on the 'Obanian'.
