BGS calls for help to develop Scottish geological trail

British Geological Survey (BGS) is calling for people to nominate their favourite geological sites in southern Scotland to feature in a new trail it is helping to develop.

BGS is working with Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership (CAVLP) on the Shaping Our Landscape trail which is aiming to allow visitors to uncover the rich geological history of the Clyde and Avon valleys.

The BGS has said that the landscape of the valleys is the product of 300M year of geological history and the trail will allow people to discover ancient coal swamps, vast ice sheets and powerful rivers that have shaped the land and the local communities.

The current phase of work includes an audit to identify important geological features that will help shape the trail.

BGS has asked for details of the geological features to be supplied by 25 September with grid references or detailed location information. Information can be emailed to enquiries@bgs.ac.uk
