The Earthquake house

Peering through the window of the Earthquake house in Comrie. This small one room building was built to exclusively monitor earthquakes. It may seem odd that it is in Comrie near Perth but the great Highland Boundary Fault which separates the Highlands from the Lowlands lies just outside Comrie. This fault was highly active 400M years ago when Strathearn like much of Britain was a hot dry desert. At that time the Fault must have been driven by global plate movements.
