Beach Pebble event: Innellan, Argyll

25 September @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

- Free

Innellan is 4 miles south of Dunoon on the Cowal Peninsula. The Highland Boundary Fault, which separates metamorphic slates and schists to the north from Devonian sandstones to the south, passes through Innellan and is exposed on the beach, together with some exotic serpentinites.

The Innellan Beach Pebble Day will focus on the rocks and pebbles that can be found along this section of the coast. Participants are encouraged to look for pebbles, and a geologist will be on hand to identify pebbles and explain the geological features of this section of coastline.
