Scottish Geology Talks

Join me and guest speakers for live, online talks on Scottish geology, delivered using the Zoom platform. Each talk lasts 45-50 minutes, with time afterwards for questions and discussion. Let me know if there is a particular topic you are interested in, or for a repeat of any of the previous talks – see the Lockdown Lecture list below. I can also do bespoke talks for groups, happy to help.

The cost for each talk is £5 per person. Students, young people and anyone who is hard up is welcome to join in, for free. Book using the links below, and you can pay by Paypal or bank transfer. You’ll receive a confirmation email with a Zoom link. For overseas visitors, please note times zone from 25 October is GMT/UTC.
