Scottish Natural Heritage. Scottish Natural Heritage is funded by the Scottish Government. Its purpose is to: promote care for and improvement of the natural heritage; help people enjoy it responsibly; enable greater understanding and awareness of it; and promote its sustainable use, now and for future generations.

Fossil collecting. Scotland has a remarkably rich geodiversity that spans nearly 3 billion years of Earth’s history. Part of this ‘Earth heritage’ is the record of the development and evolution of life on Earth in the form of fossils.

The fossil heritage exists in the natural environment, and is also preserved in museums and private collections. The conference is supported by Scottish Natural Heritage, the British Geological Survey, the Edinburgh Geological Society and the Geological Society of Glasgow.

Minerals are still playing a critical role in the Scottish economy, though much of the revenues are now from off shore oil in the North Sea.

Red sandstones and siltstones of Upper Devonian age were laid down on a peneplaned surface in the eastern and southern parts of the area, but in the west coarser sediments, the result of more vigorous erosion in an area of greater relief, accumulated in considerable thicknesses.
