Exploration of the Ullapool Thrust Field Day

May 14, 2022

£5 – £9

Field day with Geopark Geologist Pete Harrison and Alan Thompson from the Highland Geological Society.

The Ullapool thrust is a minor thrust below the Moine thrust. It and the associated rocks have been mapped in detail and we are well exposed in an area about 3km NNE of Ullapool centre. It is an opportunity to explore a small culmination in the Moine Thrust Zone, where there has been some imbrication and arching up of the overlying Moine rocks. The Assynt window is a culmination on a much larger scale. In this field trip we explore this most interesting area and attempt to identify all of the rocks and structures in this part of the Moine Thrust Zone.

The excursion will be an all day event and the cost is £9 (discounted to £5 for Friends of the Geopark and Ambassadors).

Meeting points and time will be given once places are booked. 10 places are available for this event.

To book and for further enquiries please contact: pete@legacy.nwhgeopark.com.
