Beach Pebble event: Stranraer Beach, Dumfries and Galloway

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

- Free

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

Red sandstones from nearby cliffs laid down 300 million years ago in a desert, stones from Ailsa Craig and and even a mammoth bone transported to the beach by the action of ice and water.

Visit the beach and see what you can find out about an amazing variety of pebbles.

This is a drop in event between 11:00am – 2:00pm, 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.
