2018 Geotours in the North West Highlands UNESCO Global Geopark

There are two week-long tours running in May and September next year. Expert tuition is by Geopark staff. The area has the lowest population density in Europe and exhibits unique geodiversity and biodiversity. As home of the oldest rocks in Europe, the first identified thrust fault, and with evidence of the earliest life, the North West Highlands Geopark can be regarded as the "Cradle of Geology".

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

North West Highlands Geopark Limited is a social enterprise and a charity which re-invests profits to ensure ongoing development of geo-tourism projects, conservation and educational programmes.
