A Level Geography Fieldwork

The A-Level Geography pupils spent a lovely afternoon revising coastal features and management strategies on the North Coast. First stop was Whitepark Bay where they saw relict sea arches, stacks and caves set high above the present day sea level.

The plan was to walk as far as Ballintoy Harbour, but the end of the walk was closed to the public due to filming; it would seem Geography ‘field-trippers’ aren’t appropriate Game of Thrones extras!

We then went on to Portballintrae to see the management strategies that the council have put in place to attempt to restore the sand back into the bay. A great opportunity to see a bit of textbook theory put into practice.
We couldn’t have asked for better weather, if only all Friday afternoons could be spent on the beach!
