About this event


		Arthur's Seat  Walking Tour with Robert Gatliff - new date 19th August image

The Tour

Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh is more than stunning view.

The geological features of which it is part offer us some insight into the historical development of the City.

Can this landscape also offer some clues as to how the city could adapt to the current and future challenges brought by climate change?

During the walk, the geology of Arthur’s seat will be explained and at a series of stops we will take in the spectacular views and take time to consider the geological history of Edinburgh, how it has affected the development of the city and its people and how the city could adapt to climate change, rising sea levels, and develop a new approach to building a sustainable future.

Led by Robert Gatliff

Robert Gatliff is a previous President of the Edinburgh Geological Society and a trustee of the new Scottish Geology Trust. Formerly Director of Energy and Marine Geoscience at the British Geological Survey, a previous Board Member of the Scottish Oil Club, and currently the Editor of The Edinburgh Geologist, the magazine of the Edinburgh Geological Society.
