Learn about the fascinating history of the rocks at Knockan Crag with a Geopark Ranger.

The two-hour tour of the trail will help you discover the storyline of this ancient landscape and the scientific controversy it raised in the 1890’s. Find out how the geologists of the day were able to piece together the evidence to solve the mystery and explain how the landscape was formed.

These walks are free thanks to generous sponsorship by Scottish Natural Heritage.

August 14th at 10:30hrs & August 21st at 15:00hrs



Find out more about the Highland Controversy with the new edition of Hutton’s Arse co-authored by Malcolm Rider and Pete Harrison (North West Highlands Geopark Geologist) which is now available.

Fourteen years on from the original publication, the fully revised and up-dated 2nd edition is aimed at all readers with a general interest in the last three billion years of extraordinary geology in Scotland’s northern highlands.

Copies can be purchased locally in the Rock Stop, Achins Bookshop and Ullapool Bookshop as well as all good bookstores.
