Guided Walk: Knockan Crag with Professor Rob Butler

8 September @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Join Rob Butler, Professor of Tectonics from the University of Aberdeen, for a short tour of Knockan Crag, visiting the Moine Thrust. Follow in the footsteps of pioneering geologists and the debates that finally led to tectonic understanding – ideas that were taken around the world to help in understanding how mountain ranges are formed. Rob will show examples of the diagrams and maps of the pioneers who studied this ground in the 19th century, in front of the rocks themselves.

Event in collaboration with the North West Highlands Geopark.

This walk will last around 2 hours. Meeting point to be confirmed.
