Yesterday children from Achiltibuie School braved the gale force winds at Badentarbet beach to help me continue the hunt for more stones with their teacher and Highland ranger Melanie Gaff. The cold encouraged us all to focus well and we quickly managed to locate and collect 7 orange coloured stones
We also collected stones we normally find on the beach which Meanie was able to tell us about which helped us to begin to sketch out the prehistoric history of our time line after which we began to crack open the stones to see what they held within. On Friday I will collect more samples at Ullapool Harbur Beach and all will be taken to the lab at An Talla Solais. Please join us at 10.30 am on the beach and 1pm at An Talla Solais.
