Dinosaurs have only recently been found in Scotland. Most of these are from a period from which very few dinosaurs are known. Since 1982, Middle Jurassic dinosaurs have been turning up on the Isle of Skye in the form of bones and footprints. Many new and exciting discoveries have been made and the potential for more is great. The Middle Jurassic is a time of innovation and evolution amongst dinosaurs and Scotland is in prime position to help us better understand these changes.
