Inspired by the sea journeys of geologist Hugh Miller, the Scottish Geodiversity Forum has chartered the beautiful old sailing boat Leader (see trinitysailing.org) to follow the ancient sea routes taken by travellers over the ages around Scotland’s Atlantic islands. From the coracles of early Mesolithic people to Viking longboats and Cal Mac ferries, these journeys have been influenced by the rugged landscape & unpredictable weather. We are currently recruiting 14 people of all ages and backgrounds to join us on Leader from 20th -26th June 2015. At the heart of this journey will be the stories that reveal the relationship between people and place, but perhaps above all, the importance of the underlying geology of these remarkable islands in shaping people’s lives over the millennia. The cost for the week is £515 which covers full board including delicious home cooked food. No sailing experience is required. For further information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
