Edinburgh Rocks! A billion years of Earth History in a couple of hours

10/10/2017 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Scotland is famed for the range of rocks, minerals, landforms and fossils that lie within its bounds. Edinburgh is a grand city for the geologist, as we have evidence of the movement of glaciers, extinct volcanoes and several buildings and monuments that bring geodiversity into the very heart of the capital. On this walk, which starts at the steps by the Rock House on Calton Hill, we will visit a number of sites that tell the story of geology in Scotland. For more information, and a free PDF handout, please visit the Hills of Hame website.
