Biggest earthquake in 30 years hits Moidart

AN EARTHQUAKE in Moidart, the biggest on Scotland’s west coast for 30 years, was felt from Tiree up the Great Glen to Inverness, writes Neill Bo Finlayson.

The magnitude 3.8 tremor was recorded by the British Geological Survey (BGS) at its epicentre 5kms below the Moidart peninsula on Friday August 4 at 3.43pm.

The BGS said the earthquake was ‘felt across the west’. A second tremor two minutes later measured 3.4 and an aftershock more than two hours later registered 2.2.
