Strathclyde Geoconservation

Scotland's geodiversity is remarkable.  For our size, we have some of the most varied geology in the world, and the west of Scotland is home to much of this exciting story.  The Group's casework so far includes evidence of flash floods in the Old Red desert, world-class Carboniferous fossil trees and the Highland Boundary Fault beneath the ground that results in the mountainous boundary between the Highlands and the Lowlands.
