Lochaber is fortunate to have a Geopark which is an area of outstanding geological heritage with a vision to promote the heritage for the local community. The area covers from Rannoch Moor (south) to Glen Garry (north) and from Loch Laggan (east) to the Small Isles (Eigg, Muck and Rum) and Canna in the west.
To become a geopark the site must have various areas of geological or geomorphological areas of national/international interests and to help the community and visitor learn about the earth and to benefit from it.
There is a Visitors Centre in the High Street, Fort William which will inform about the park.
To learn more about the Geopark why not do a Rock Route/Lochaber Geotrails/visit the information points. The Land, Sea and Islands Centre in the village of Arisaig is one of the Information Points for the Lochaber Geopark.
