Museum Galleries Scotland (MGS) has been collating information about the various fossils located in Scottish museums and they have just produced a comprehensive report which provides some online detail for those interested. The report is some 50 pages long but below is a link to cutdown version which documents the museum collections in the North East which, of course, includes the Tolbooth museum as we have fossils as part of our geological exhibition. All 11 of our fossils are on display and you are encouraged to view them at your convenience. Our opening times are listed on the front page of our web site.
