xx Geology ramblings
« Thread started on: Aug 3rd, 2010, 1:50pm »

I thought it would be nice to share some of the write-ups of various walks I'd done for the local geology group

Here is one of an abortive search for a fossil tree on the Isle of Mull of the west coast of Scotland about 4 years ago

I just scanned through your Arran write-up and it brought back some memories as Arran was where I spent my A-Level Geology field trip. smiley

Love these Hoggy - we do live close to the most beautiful countryside on the planet smiley

Thanks for sharing - very interesting. Not been to Arran, but as most people who know me on here know, Scotland is my favourite place in the world. smiley

I think someone only read this thread because they thought there was mention of Choccy Substrates.... grin

Arran is heaven on earth. When it isn't raining.... rolleyes

We weren't in Glen Rosa, unfortunately, when it rained! We had a service user in a wheelchair, and had to use his vehicle to drive 20 YARDS to get to the pub for dinner one night, and even then we couldn't see the pub in the headlights when we got there. I have never seen rain like it.

We stayed in Kildonan. Beautiful, in the morning, watching seals sunbathing on the beach.

We stayed at Blackwaterfoot a couple of times, first time I ever say a sea otter in the late evening, and in the same spot a few hours earlier I nearly got hit by my first golf-ball. I wasn't playing, just hiking.

It is amazing. As a geologist, you'll know it's described as Scotland in miniature, because of its make up.

The wildlife & landscape is incredible. I saw more species in one day than you could hope to in a lifetime.

My one regret is not getting to the standing stones at Machrie Moor. We couldn't take the wheelchair to it, and I was "working", not sightseeing!

Sorry I missed this post, it's a shame you couldn't get to Machrie Moor, this may help compensate a little

Only trillions? Must have been the quiet season....

Fantastic pics, Hoggy. Made me all the more determined to get back.
