Online event

This is a live repeat of the virtual field trip to SE Islay that David Webster presented recently at the Edinburgh Geological Society’s AGM.

The trip, which starts and finishes at Port Ellen, looks at the igneous and meta-igneous rocks of the south coast and visits a few distilleries and some historical/archaeological sites too. Some of the localities visited are described in Excursions 10 & 11 of A Guide to the Geology of Islay by D. Webster, R. Anderton & A. Skelton (Ringwood Publishing, 2015).

The event will be held as a Zoom meeting. Society members for whom we have email addresses have been sent instructions on how to join the meeting. If you are a member but did not receive an email, or a non-member who would like to join the meeting, please email the society’s meetings secretary to request the instructions.
