The interpretation board focuses on the four ancient volcanoes that have been responsible for shaping the Inner Hebrides. These volcanoes were active 60 million years ago.
The board is sited to allow you to observe three of these much eroded volcanoes (Ardnamurchan, Rum and Skye). The magma chambers and lava fields are all that remain of these ancient volcanoes.
The board describes how the islands of Mull and Skye are formed mainly of black basalt.
The board also profiles each of the volcanoes supported by photographs. The volcanoes range from the ring complexes of the Ardnamurchan volcanic centres and those of Skye, to the layered intrusions of Rum .
The board is located in the sea front car-park overlooking the Sound of Sleat by the Morar Community Centre.
A great opportunity to explore the important of volcanic events in the making of landscapes.
