Scotland’s spectacular scenery is a result of an amazing geological story stretching back over 3000 million years.

The 51 Best Places to see Scotland’s Geology project will help you find out more about Scotland's geological heritage and guide you to the best places to see different elements of the story laid out in our country’s beautiful landscapes.

You can find out your nearest Best Places on the 51 Best Places Google Map

The list was compiled by the Scottish Geodiversity Forum, with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, as part of Scotland’s year of History Heritage and Archaeology 2017.
