    DescriptionShort radio clip about geology in a local country park in Glasgow that was one of a series of short weekly pieces about geology in Scotland. I was joined by presenter Euan McIlwraith for a mid-winter walk in Linn Park to see the unexpectedly impressive gorge of the Whitecart Water and the "Linn" (waterfall), and discussed the way in which the rocks tell stories about Scotland's ancient past and the value of geology in the industrial development of Glasgow.
