A Jurassic Road Trip Through Scotland

Trace Scotland’s Jurassic roots

From giant footprints in the sand to dinosaur bones in a Glasgow museum

With its looming castles and deep lochs shrouded in mystery, Scotland is pretty well-known for its historic sites. But dig a little deeper and you’ll make some fascinating prehistoric discoveries. From one of the world’s most complete Tyrannosaurus rex casts to enormous dinosaur footprints recently discovered on the Isle of Skye, Scotland’s Jurassic attractions are as beguiling as the legend of Nessie.


The film industry has taken note, too, with scenes from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom shot at the Glen Mallan Jetty on Loch Long, a 45-minute drive from Glasgow Airport.


Here’s where to stop on a Jurassic road trip through Scotland, tracing the footsteps of giants – and, at times, seeing them up close.
