The Edinburgh Geological Society, founded in 1834, organises public lectures in winter, an excursion programme in summer and publishes books, leaflets, excursion guides and periodicals. We also maintain a geological library.

The aim of the society is to encourage public interest in geology and the advancement of geological knowledge. We are one of the largest geological societies in the UK.

As part of this collaboration the Society is providing field descriptions of geological walks, excursions and sites from its published guidebooks.

Guidebooks can be purchased from the EGS website.
