Next stop, land on Ramsey and spend the afternoon of Geology guided by Sid and explore this spectacular island nature reserve.
You will make numerous stops for all the best viewpoints and an expert explanation of the fascinating geological history of Ramsey islands Nature Reserve and its surroundings, starting over 600 million years ago.

By the end of the day every aspect of the development of this remarkable island will have been explained.

Sid teaches geology at all levels (from primary to university) and works locally as a professional geologist with a specialist environmental background.
He'll start at a level suitable for beginners but should also be able to answer most, if not all, of your questions.

It's a rugged island and the weather is often changeable so you must have suitable clothing and footwear.
Please bring a packed lunch and enough to drink during the day.
At the end of the day you will arrive back at the farmhouse where you can have a tea or coffee and chat with the wardens while you wait for the boat to arrive at 4pm to take you back to the mainland.
