Description
Joint excursion with the Edinburgh Geological Society
 
Leader: Dr Con Gillen
 
We will examine Devonian volcanic and sedimentary rocks (perhaps including the source of the Stone of Destiny) and look at a variety of building stones in Perth City. We start with a walk up to Kinnoull Hill on a waymarked footpath. Then on to Quarrymill woodland park, with a flat walk of approximately 1 km. Then down to the River Tay at Scone for a river walk of 2.5 km on a flat path. Then Perth city centre for about 2 km on pavements from St John's Kirk to Smeaton Bridge-Queen's Bridge.
 
This will be followed by a high tea at a venue still to be decided.
 
This excursion is now fully booked.
