Hello
Can anyone help us please.  I'm a volunteer at Elgin museum, Moray, and we've a very large Jurassic ammonite in our collection which we can't identify.  The fossil was found probably 100-150 years ago in an erratic near Elgin.  Historically we had a few fossiliferous erratics of limestone which were quarried with fossils emerging from time to time.  I can imagine it's from the Jurassic of East Sutherland but my guide books don't offer much help.
Any i.d welcomed, thank you. download.jpg  download.jpg Click image for larger version - Name: download (1).jpg, Views: 43, Size: 137.78 KB

It could be some kind of Perisphinctid, but that's as far as I can go, I'm afraid. And being in an erratic doesn't help, either.
Experts on this forum might be able to ID the fossil

Thanks your reply Estwing, yes it's a bit beaten up but your thoughts will give us something to go on.
