Highly fractured and faulted Lewisian basement, Upper Garrabost beach, Lewis

We’ve just got back from a scouting mission to Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, to finalise the field itinerary and double-check logistics and HSE for our upcoming workshop in fractured basement reservoirs, scheduled for September. It rained! A lot! And it was so windy that the arrival of our trip leader Bob Holdsworth was delayed by a day too (which just meant we could check out some of the wonderful geology for ourselves). And anyway, the dreich weather was more than offset by the warm welcome we received on the island, and the fantastic outcrops that we encountered. Can’t wait for September!
