Geology Trip Arthur’s Seat

Primary 5 went on an interesting trip to Arthur’s Seat this week. The rangers at Holyrood Park taught us about the geology of the area and helped us add to the knowledge we had gained at school.

The rangers transported us millions of years into the past where we imagined a very different world. Among the highlights were a volcanic model, a massive boulder deposited in the Park by a glacier in the ice age and sedimentary rocks proving that the area was once near the equator and a tropical beach.
