Beach Pebble event: Kirkcudbright Beach

9 October @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

- Free

Experts will help you discover the story behind pebbles you find on the beach.

Sandstones from nearby cliffs laid down 430 million years ago in a deep ocean, granite transported by ice and water to the beach by the action of ice and water and rocks formed in a volcanic vent and exposed on a nearby beach.

Visit the beach and see what you can find out about pebbles and some surprising ways stones have arrived on the beach.

This is a drop in event, so you can turn up at a time that suits you and spend as as long as you like talking to the experts.

Free, booking not required. Please contact the organiser if you have any questions.
