NORTH WEST HIGHLANDS UNESCO GLOBAL GEOPARK

GEOTOURS 2020

We are now taking bookings for Geotours 2020.

The North West Highlands Geopark has a varied and exciting geological history and holds within its boundaries some of the oldest rocks in Europe,  fossil evidence of the earliest life,  traces of Scotland’s oldest recorded meteorite strike and a landscape that enabled the early geologists to develop the theory of thrust faulting.

Over the course of a week you will travel the length of the Geopark visiting areas of geological significance in the company of  local geologist Pete Harrison who will provide expert guidance to help you interpret the landscape.

Geoheritage Festival
