It’s a terrible thing when you can’t remember anything about a field trip, albeit 19 years ago.  I know it was centered around Ullapool, on the west coast of Scotland, and I know there were some sites that we visited that had something to do with the Assynt Window.  Other than that, I draw a blank.

Our accommodation for the week long trip, was a group of chalets at Ardmair, outside Ullapool.  I think this could have been a clever tactic by our profs to ensure that we didn’t spend too much time at the local pub ;)

Slightly further on from us was the Ardmair campsite.  A beautiful setting indeed.

And now for some token geological photography.

Obligatory road-side cutting.. Pegmatitic intrusions...

There's a thrust in there somewhere!
