Innellan Beach Pebble Day

10 September @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm

- Free

Innellan is a village on the Cowal Peninsula, adjacent to the Firth of Clyde. Its geology is notable because the Highland Boundary Fault is exposed on the beach, including a section of the Highland Border Group. A narrow wedge of serpentinite, believed to be a remnant of oceanic crust, is preserved within the fault zone. A diverse range of pebbles can be found on the beach.
Geologists will be on hand for this drop-in Beach Pebble Day, to help identify the diverse range of pebbles that can be found on the beach, and to provide tours of the local geology.

Free, drop-in, no booking required.
