North West Highlands Field Trip
Led by local Geologist Pete Harrison
The GEOLiteracy events are all about sharing the love of geology. An opportunity for members and their friends and family to learn together and share that ‘passion’ for earth science.
This years’ topic was meteor impacts and we had a field trip to the North West Highlands Geopark to explore this theme.
There were 60/40 geo/non geo and you can see some of the feedback below along with some of their fantastic photos above:
The whole weekend was very well organised. The weather was excellent. The midges weren’t too bad most of the time! Peter did a great job of explaining the geology to both experienced geologists and non-geologists and made the whole trip hugely enjoyable.
This was a great trip and I hope you organise more events like this. I for one would be happy to go back for Part 2 if there ever is one!
Thank you very much to you and everyone at the PESGB for organising a super field trip to the North West Highlands Geopark last weekend. We had a great trip and were very lucky with the weather.
Pete did a really good job of presenting the geology at different levels to cater for geologists and non-geologists.
Pete’s enthusiasm and ability to communicate the subject to such a diverse group was outstanding, he must have been a great teacher in his day!
We were blessed with fantastic weather and an unexpected close-up of a stag at Knockan Crag. Even the midges were tolerable, just….More of the same please!
Thank you for organising the field trip. It was a great weekend.
I brought my girlfriend and had a great time being able to share with her a little of the world in which I work and why I find it so fascinating.
I was very impressed by Peter’s presentation in general, giving non-professionals a simplified walk through was most useful.
Both of us enjoyed the trip. I was delighted that I was able to spot and understand structures that were previously only known from textbooks.
I did enjoy the trip and intend to return on one of the Geopark’s longer trips probably later this year or next year.
