Edinburgh Geological Society Excursion: Siccar Point

26 September @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Siccar Point© Angus Miller

Siccar Point is described as the most important geological site in the world. It demonstrates an unconformity between two sets of strata and was used by James Hutton to support his world-shaking ideas of geological time and natural processes.

We will visit the Old Red Sandstone exposures at Pease Bay before walking out to Siccar Point over a grassy field.

Organised by the Edinburgh Geological Society. Booking essential, and please read and take note of the Code of Conduct & Safety Guidelines, in particular the procedures in place to minimise the transmission of Coronavirus.
