Dinopark

Galloway Tourist Route

Can you hear that roar? Then you must be on your way to Dinopark at Hetland Garden Centre in Currutherston! Take a walk through the woods and who knows what you’ll see – a triceratops guarding her young, a brachiosaur munching leaves from the trees and a fearsome tyrannosaurus rex guarding the path ahead. These large models will enthral your children, who will also love pretending to be palaeontologists as they dig for dinosaur bones at this unique attraction.

Just to the south of Carrutherston you’ll find Ruthwell, which is home to the Savings Banks Museum, and the Anglo-Saxon Ruthwell Cross.
