Raising awareness of Scotland’s internationally significant geological natural heritage.

The project is run by Scottish Geodiversity Forum, a place which brings people and organisations together to promote Scotland’s rare and diverse geology and geoheritage. The organisation provides a number of other services for the public sector including event organisation and advocacy.

The project focuses on capturing the 51 best places to see Scotland’s geology, creating information about these sites through a booklet and online resource and delivering a festival of events across 30 of the sites for a wide range of audiences including young people, local communities and academia.

Families and local communities will take part in guided walks across Scotland’s coasts and landscapes. A variety of walks will be made available to cater to all abilities.

The project will raise awareness of an under explored aspect of Scotland’s heritage and will connect local communities to the geology and natural heritage around them.
