Welcome to visitors from the virtual Festival of Geology 2020. Lothian and Borders GeoConservation would like to invite you to explore the wonderful geology of south-east Scotland. In this area, you’ll find a great variety of interesting rocks and landscapes, including volcanoes such as Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh and the Bass Rock in the Firth of Forth. There is also a range of Carboniferous sedimentary rock, including Edinburgh’s sandstone and fossil-rich limestone at Barns Ness near Dunbar. Browse our leaflets below!
