VISITORS to Aith might be forgiven for thinking they’ve travelled back in time if they step into the Michaelswood garden this week.

A number of dinosaur models have gone on show at the Westside woodland attraction as part of a new trail, with visitors able to learn about the likes of the tyrannosaurus rex and the brachiosaurus.

The information panels were created and researched by primary two and three pupils from the Aith school, while secondary one kids also got involved.

The trail received £12,000 of funding from Tesco’s Bags of Help scheme, which raises money for green space community projects through the 5p plastic bag charge.


A total of ten people headed to Michaelswood on Monday night to help install the last of the dinosaurs, which were bought from a model company in Devon.

Owner Ray Ferrie said that the prehistoric creatures are now a permanent feature of Michaelswood. “Young children of every generation seem to love dinosaurs,” he said.
