While Barbados is largely a coral island, consisting of formations that, according to professor Hans Machel, range from 500,000 to 800,000 years old, there is a portion of the island where the coral cap is totally eroded. This area, known as the Scotland District, covers 1/7 of our total land mass, mainly in the North East of the island.

It is comprised of sedimentary material - clay, shale, sandstone and these combine to produce stunning formations which,along with some unique coral patterns, we will highlight in this section of our blog.
