Public collecting of agates is not allowed at the agate bearing areas of Balmeadowside Farm. The owner is not given any permission to enter his property for collecting agates.
The agates of Balmeadowside Farm are showing nice pinkish to reddish colours. “Onyx-agate” (”water-level-agate”) is very often part of the banding.
More informations about scottish agates are given in Dr.H.G. Macpherson´s book “agates” (published by the British Museum (Natural History) and the National Museums of Scotland).
