The agate-bearing locations along the eastern side of Scotland lie within the old counties of Kincardine, Angus, Perth and Fife. These comprise the eastern end of the Midland Valley, which bisects Scotland along a north east, south west line. This region provides a number of productive areas for the collector and is also of more general geological interest, due to the wide variety of rock types and structures it comprises.
Some sites have been well known to collectors for many years, others are known to only a few. Because of the number of locations it would be impracticable to describe all possible collecting areas. The keen individual with judicious use of geological and ordnance survey maps and utilising previously published information will, in time, identify his or her own favourite sites in Eastern Scotland. Within this area the following sites have produced some exeptional specimens:
|Barras Quarry||Ferryden and Scurdie Ness|
|St Cyrus||Usan and Lunan Bay|
