The curator of Staffin Museum in Skye has compiled an extensive history behind each of the rare Jurassic finds on the Hebridean island.
Discoveries were made as far back as the early 80s, with trackways and spectacular footprints dating back 166 million years uncovered, making Skye an internationally renowned area for its rich wealth of dinosaur fossils.
The island, known as Scotland’s Dinosaur Isle, is the location for new discoveries each year with the finds becoming so important they have even been given legal protection under a Nature Conservation Order.
Now Dugald Ross and his co-author Sarah White have compiled the first book of its kind, detailing the finds.
The pair met during Ms White’s visit to Staffin Museum in 2014.
Mr Ross said: “Skye’s Jurassic past is hugely important to palaeontology given the rarity of such locations throughout the world and has a unique timeline that needed to be recorded.”
The work has been three years in the making and has created a full-illustrated 62-page record of Skye’s finds from the middle Jurassic period.
To mark the publication of their work, a book launch and signing will be held in Staffin community hall on March 19 at 3.30pm.
