The society published two field guides, one in paperback form, the other as downloadable field excursions.

Excursion Guide to the Geology of E. Sutherland and Caithness. N. H. Trewin and A. Hurst (Eds) Dunedin Academic Press, Edinburgh.

This is an updated version of the 1993 guide with numerous colour illustrations, and a new excursion (Sandside Bay).

AGS members price is £8.00 and price to non-members is £12.00, available from Aberdeen Department of Geology & Petroleum Geology.

Generous support from PESGB, Senergy and HRH to the AGS has allowed us to produce this guide book at an exceptionally affordable price.

Excursion Guide to the Geology of the Aberdeen Area. N. H. Trewin, B. C. Kneller and C. Gillen (Eds) 1986. Scottish Academic Press.

We are now pleased to inform you that plans to republish the Aberdeen Guide in digital format are moving on at a pace. Our intrepid volunteers have been out checking the excursions for any changes that may have occurred since they guide was originally published. Ten excursions are now available, two of which are free to download.

The files are available in pdf format which you can download to your hard drive and print off at home. All but two of the guides are encrypted and will require the entry of a password to gain access (Denoted by the little padlock icon in the list below). Members may contact a committee member to have a password emailed to you.
