Equipment

The centre’s field kit store contains all the specialised field equipment necessary to ensure that each student gains experience of carrying out a range of techniques used to on study. For Geologists this includes borrowing a ‘pack’ of basic geology equipment including a hand lens, compass clinometer, steel pin and a grain size card. (Meanwhile Geography schools get the chance to dye a river green with fluorescein!)

The centre has five versatile classrooms fully fitted with whiteboards, projectors and IT facilities, which act as the base for your group where morning introductory lectures and evening follow up classes take place.

We also have a boot store where students are able to hire personal equipment suitable for facing the toughest of Scottish weather (for a small charge).
