North West Highlands UNESCO Global Geopark Highland Controversy Geotour

5 June - 10 June

The new Highlands Controversy tour has been designed to take you through the story of how the early victorian geologists unravelled the complex geology of the North West Highlands during the latter years of the 19th century.

You will learn how the amateur geologists, supported by evidence they uncovered in the field, challenged the established Geological Survey on the accepted theories of the time. The resulting debate led to a complete re-evaluation of the landscape and introduced the new theory of Thrust Faulting.
