“51 Best Places to see Scotland’s Geology” Launch Day

14/10/2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join us to explore the amazing landscapes right on your doorstep with the official launch of the ‘51 Best Places to see Scotland’s Geology’ project.

Bring all the family along to find out more about Scotland’s astonishing geological heritage, highlighting the Best Places to go and see the landscapes and landforms that tell Scotland’s story. Our country has travelled right across the globe from Antarctica, and along the way we’ve gathered evidence stored in our rocks, telling stories of explosive volcanic eruptions, vast desert expanses, the disappearance of oceans, and yes, even our very own dinosaurs.

You can expect lots of exciting hands-on activities and displays that will leave you feeling inspired about Scotland’s landscapes, and your own local patch; after this you will definitely want to go out and explore!

Free entry to the event (Dynamic Earth is open to visitors as usual for the normal entry fee, but the Best Places launch event is free and open to all, on the top deck at Dynamic Earth)

Activities and stalls all day, 10am – 4pm

Launch event 2pm

My favourite Best Place 3pm – short talks from enthusiasts about six of the Best Places.

This event is organised by the Scottish Geodiversity Forum and Dynamic Earth with our partners from across Scotland.
