Isle of Eigg GeoWeek Geotour

A successful trip on the ferry over to the beautiful Isle of Eigg, as part of GeoWeek 2019, on Monday 6th May 2019 led to the following highlights of the day:

  • Enjoying the sunny weather and being sheltered from the Northwind
  • Erosive patterns on columnar joints of pitchstone
  • Basalt lava flow bedrock
  • Rotten paleosol that was hydrothermally altered
  • Conglomerate formed from the debris of the flood basalt
  • Kestrels soaring
  • Views to Ardnamurchan, Muck and Coll

Thanks to those who joined the Geotour and thank you to Jim Blair, Chairman of Lochaber Geopark, for leading the tour.
