Scottish Pavement Fish Project
To date, twenty remains of fossil fish and plants from the Devonian Caithness flagstones lining the streets of Edinburgh have been found. With more areas within Edinburgh to explore (the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena at Ratho) we don’t doubt that more will be found. And that is just in Edinburgh! Caithness flagstones have been used in the pavements of Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee, London, Paris and even Beunos Aires! See the last project post for more details of the project and pictures of our Edinburgh finds.
