Geology Residential Visit to the Isle of Arran
In early November A2 Geology students were involved in a residential fieldtrip to the Isle of Arran. The aim of the visit was to bring to life theory that is part of their A Level Geology studies. All students were involved in primary fieldwork and data collection and were able to apply geological theory and gain a real importance and understanding of fieldwork techniques and their application. The visit provided a unique opportunity for the students to work in a very beautiful and stimulating environment within a protected area of international conservation and importance as the Isle of Arran has often been described as 'Scotland in Miniature'.
