Scotland has over 1000 sites that are designated as important for geology and geomorphology at a national or local level, but the value and importance of these sites is often not recognised. It is hard to find information about them and systematic monitoring is under-resourced.

The Scottish Geology Trust’s Geosites project, which was launched in June 2023, aims to put all of Scotland’s best geology sites on an interactive, online map, making it easy for anyone to find sites, learn about them, and report any damage or deteriorating conditions. The trust is supporting a network of volunteers to visit sites and become ambassadors who will engage with local communities to learn and benefit from their local geoheritage.

The interactive map and more information about the project can be found on the Geosites project website.

If you would like to become involved in the project, please contact Angus Miller.
