AFES Field Trip, Stonehaven

July 2 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us for an evening fieldtrip along the exposures north of Stonehaven town to see Devonian fluvial rocks, the Highland Border Complex & Highland Boundary Fault.

We will meet outside of the outdoor swimming pool at 16:00, walk along the foreshore between Cowie Bay & Craigeven Bay, and back long the cliff-top path.  Dinner in Stonehaven is optional also (self paid).

A charge of £10 for members & £5 for students, payable on the day, will be donated to The Archie Foundation.

HSE considerations:

  • the trip will be cancelled if weather conditions are poor (we’ll try to do so the day before, according to weather forecast, to an email list of attendees)
  • the tide will be falling & low tide at c. 18:00 BST, so that rising tide will not be a problem
  • some areas of rock exposure can be very slippery & some clambering over rock exposures is necessary
  • we will avoid going close to a section of higher cliffs

What to bring:

  • stout walking boots & field clothing are recommended, extending to waterproofs & sun hat if conditions require
  • hard hats are not essential, but please bring your own if you want to
  • please inform the organisers/fieldtrip leaders of any medical conditions that are relevant before the trip.

Places are limited to 40 participants; if you are interested in attending, please contact to stephen.morris@bhge.com
