Overview of Organisation
Aim and Activities: The Highland Geological Society’s main aim is to promote the understanding of the science of geology and other earth sciences through the organisation of field trips and lectures. Since it was founded in the early 1980’s the Society has served both the experienced geologist and the keen amateur. During winter evenings, illustrated talks and workshops are held on a wide variety of topics of geological interest ranging from the 3 thousand million years old rocks of the North West Highlands, to the most recent glacial events which shaped the landscape as we know it today. Warmer weather allows for active participation in some “real” geology, and guided field trips are organised to many of our Classic areas of interest, for example Assynt, Glen Esk, Skye and Glen Coe. These are always interesting and great fun, attracting people from all walks of life, all ages, and all abilities. There is no better way of leaning about the rocks upon which we live and work. The Society holds an extensive collection of books and Journals that have been mainly donated by past members. These are held in the central Library at Farraline Park and available for loan to Members of the Society. Members are always keen to welcome new faces, so don’t be shy, why not come along and give us a try!
