Contribution to the Scottish Geodiversity Forum's 51 Best Places to see Scotland's Geology online

Activity: Other activity typesTypes of Public engagement and outreach - Media article or participation


The 51 Best Places to see Scotland’s Geology was run by the Scottish Geodiversity Forum to help the public to find out more about Scotland’s geological heritage, and guide you to the best places to see different elements of the story laid out in our country’s beautiful landscapes.

The Scottish Geodiversity Forum’s 51 Best Places to see Scotland’s Geology project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, as part of Scotland’s year of History Heritage and Archaeology 2017. Why 51 best places? We were aiming for a list of 50 places but our panel of experts just couldn’t quite agree. So we have 51 sites for now: but even then everyone has favourites that aren’t included here.
