First LG3 trip of 2017

On Wednesday, 29th March, Lochaber Geopark Geology Group (LG3) are heading out on their first excursion of 2017.

Destination: Lochaline

Agenda: Meet at Corran Ferry at 09.30, to share transport and take the 09.45 ferry.

Follow the road to Lochaline. There will be roadside stops en route. Stops will include the Moine/Permian-Trias unconformity, the ‘Fossil Road’, Permo-Triassic and Jurassic sediments, and basalt lavas.

Lunch will be by the yacht pontoons at Lochaline. There will be a very low spring tide, enabling a serious fossil hunt on the foreshore (you might want to bring wellies?).

Other stops will be included if time allows.

Return to the Corran Ferry about 5.30/6.00pm.

Please bring: Usual walking boots, waterproofs, packed lunch, wellies, cameras, binoculars.

Walking distances are expected to be short and on a ‘there-and-back’ basis.

Cost: own transport, and a £10 donation to Lochaber Geopark (£5 for Lochaber Geopark volunteers)
*Places are limited so please book in advance!*
