Introducing the geology of Angus

Honouring the lifetime work and achievements of Paul Ewing, geology teacher at Arbroath High School. Focusing on Angus County, the City of Dundee, wider Tayside, Fife & geology.

Introducing you to the amazing natural world of Angus!

Highlands, Lowlands and Coast

Tayside Geodiversity is a group of professional and amateur geoscientists who are interested in making our geology and landscape better known. We aim to produce leaflets and information boards about local geology and geomorphology sites and to protect and improve these sites.

This is a start-up society so we can trial the possibility of a proper society studying geology in the region.

We post a lot on Facebook!

Our Facebook account allows you to discover the latest in Angus and Scottish geology.

Fife and Angus geology: an excursion guide

The area covered by the guide book is bounded by a line extending north-west from Kinghorn to Perth and then northeast to the coast at a point just north of Stonehaven, then back down the coast to St Andrews, Fife Ness and along the south coast of Fife to Kinghorn. Two excursions lying outside this area, those to Glen Esk and to Comrie, are included to broaden the range of geology readily accessible from St Andrews.

My name is Hunor Deak (BSc Geology)

I am the founder and the President of the Dundee and Angus Geology Society. Tayside has it all! The counties of Perth & Kinross and Angus together with the city of Dundee lie across one of the great divides of Scottish geology. The Highland Boundary Fault separates the very old, deformed and metamorphosed Dalradian rocks of the Highlands from the mildly deformed Old Red Sandstone of the Midland Valley. Ice sheets eroded the mountains and left sheets of debris in the valleys. Great pioneers of geology such as James Hutton and Charles Lyell were inspired here.
