Members excursion to Glen Roy

The sunny weather had passed and the dramatic West coast weather returned for the Friends of Lochaber Geopark trip to Glen Roy on Sunday 30th June. Glen Roy is a National Nature Reserve for its geological formations, the Parallel Roads. The lines, or roads, are remnants of old shorelines formed by an ice-dammed lake in the Quarternary period. The area is a geomorphological paradise with other features such as fans and hanging valleys. Thank you to Jim Blair, Lochaber Geopark’s Chairman, for leading the outing and to Catriona and Peter for braving the dreich conditions.
