Part IA - Arran

Arran is a truly beautiful island off South-West Scotland. During the Easter vacation of the Part IA course you will spend seven days here, in a location unparallelled in the world for the diversity and number of different geological features. We investigate the wonderful sediments that document Britain's northwards drift across the equator over the last 400 million years, seeing gigantic millipede tracks in Carboniferous forests, the deserts of the Permian and the volcanism of the last sixty million years.
