You can see the earlier beach levels in the Hebrides from the deposit of

I've finally gotten around to reading After the Ice by Steven Mithen.
of the things that is mentioned there is that the weight of the glaciers
actually depressed the land that was covered with ice, causing the land
bulge up in the latitudes south of the glaciers. Thus the sea depths in
1990 may not tell the complete story of what lands might have been
during the ice ages.
