Scoping the Scarp!
24 April 2009
Scotland's landscape today provides many clues to the changing climate of its past if you only know how to read it. We researched quite a bit on this for the FCS Culbin project - and now tend to notice shingle ridges and raised beaches wherever we go!
A new Highland Council/partnership project this spring is examining the possibilities of getting across the significance of the Inverness 'scarp' to visitors and local people. The biggest challenge is that it is not technically an escarpment (which tends to be formed through erosion) but a kame terrace, which is created through climate changes during glaciation - and much more exciting to interpret!
