Wooster Geologist in Scotland

1 Thurso streetTHURSO, SCOTLAND (June 18, 2015) — My long train trip from Scarborough was successful yesterday. I arrived in the dark (or what passes for darkness this far north) and had a long walk from the train station to my hotel. My introduction to Scotland was a driving rain with high winds, so I arrived at the hotel soaked through. These photos, then, are from this morning with much better weather.

3 Weigh Inn ThursoHere is my hotel. Last night I found it on the outskirts of this small city in a rainstorm.

We had our first sessions of the 2015 Larwood Symposium today at the Environmental Research Institute in Thurso. I was very pleased to give my talk in the morning so I can relax for the rest of the meeting.
