Isle of Skye Field Trip 

Isle of Skye Four days – 28 June – 1 July 2024 This field trip provides an opportunity to observe and discuss the stratigraphy and sedimentology of tidally influenced deltas and tidal sandsheets that were deposited in the NE Atlantic Seaway in the Middle Jurassic. We will focus on key sections at the type site at Bearreraig Bay and Glasnakille on Skye, and Screapadal on Rassay. The outcrops, on the far west coast of Scotland, are also uniquely placed to offer a window into the wider passive margin geology of the NE Atlantic. £525.00 per person Led by Ron Steel – UT Austin, Texas and Stuart Archer – Harbour Energy 

Further Information: 

This trip will depart from Aberdeen bright and early on the 28th June and return to Aberdeen on the 1st July. You will stay at the Portree Youth Hostel in shared dormitories, where Breakfast and Lunch will be provided. All other meals will need to be sourced by yourself. The Drivers will arrange for stops en-route to facilitate this. Due to the remote-ness of the locations, it is to be expected that choices may be limited. 

The accommodation is in single sex dormitories which the accommodation provider allocates according to the Sex written on your passport. Each dormitory contains 2-8 beds.
