2019 Geotours in the North West Highlands UNESCO Global Geopark

There are three week-long tours in 2019, and the remaining tour is 11-17 September. Expert tuition by Geopark staff will help you to interpret the geology of this wild and remote highland landscape. As home of the oldest rocks in Europe, the first identified thrust fault, the oldest meteorite impact ejecta plus evidence of the earliest life, the North West Highlands Geopark really is the "Cradle of Geology"

Full details of the tours and information on how to book can be found here.

The North West Highlands Geopark is a community company limited by guarantee and a charity in Scotland. The board comprises 7 community directors, one from each of the community councils within the Geopark, who work alongside the other office bearers, directors and staff.
