This is a small collection of images from today as our final S3 Culzean trip draws to a close. What a marvellous place to study geography! In the morning, our group split in two and moved between the Culzean coast and the visitor exhibition. The coastline offers excellent opportunities not just for erosion studies, but also to look at the effects of isostatic uplift (raised beaches) and the effect of meltwater (gorges) on the landscape. Chuck in a bit of geology and it ticks a lot of boxes.
We spent the rest of the day looking at tourism and its impacts, with environmental quality and attractiveness surveying. A really full day, very useful for understanding not just geographical themes, but geographical enquiry.
