Berwickshire Coastal Path

Saturday, 25 June 2016
9:00 am - 7:00 pm
Event Category:

Joint Excursion with the Edinburgh Geological Society

Leader: Dr Angus Miller

We will visit Cove Harbour to view Carboniferous sedimentary rocks, then return to the cliff top to follow the Berwickshire Coastal Path around to Pease Bay (lunch stop, view Devonian sedimentary rocks). We will then continue along the coastal path to Siccar Point. You can view Siccar Point safely from the viewpoint above, or, if conditions permit, descend a steep grassy slope that may be slippery. Siccar Point itself is rocky and potentially slippery underfoot.  Participants should only descend to Siccar Point if they are physically fit, properly equipped with walking boots and the conditions are suitable: grass not too wet, not too windy. We will then return the short distance to the Siccar Point car park for coach pickup around 4pm. The excursion will be followed by high tea, in company with our Edinburgh colleagues, and we will aim to return to Glasgow by around 19:00.

£20 deposit. This is set at a level to recover the anticipated costs of the trip. In addition, please be aware that any balance of costs will be recovered by a small surcharge on the day of the excursion. There will also be an additional charge for the high tea.
