Last night, as part of the Scottish Geology Festival there was a lecture in the Coigach Community Hall about the Stac Fada metorite strike by local geologist Fiona Saywell. I’d have loved to have gone.
Fiona was talking about the largest known meteorite strike in the British Isles – some 1.2 billion years ago and is today leading a walk at Stoer to see some of the evidence first hand.
These events are just part of a month of lectures and field trips in the area including:
Weds 9th Sept – Visit to the Bone Caves at Inchnadamph
Thursday 10th Sept – Scourie Coast – A Gneiss Walk
Friday 11th Sept – How the NW Highlands Tells Us How the Himalayas are Made
Saturday 12th Sept – Field Excursion – From Sango Beach to Arnaboll & Moine Thrusts
Tuesday 22nd Sept – Stac Fada Meteorite Strike
Wednesday 23rd Sept – A Billion Years of Life at Achnahaird
Monday 28th Sept – Mapping – How the Geologists do it
Looks like a great programme. Full details can be found here.
