GCSE Geography Field Trip
Thirty three Year 10 Geography students recently tested the hypothesis that the bedload of the River Findhorn reduces and becomes more rounded with distance from the source. The other aim was to observe how land use changes as the river matures. They started tjeir trip on the Dava Moor on a small tributary to the rive and visited spectacular sights such as Dulsie Bridge and Randolph’s Leap. After lunch at Logie Steading, where the students were able to read an excellent display about the river, they worked their way down to the Findhorn estuary. The weather was excellent and the learning experience was invaluable for the students.
