BLiSS ART TRAIL A “FANTASTIC ADDITION” TO WHAT STRATHEARN HAS TO OFFER

During a recent campaigning visit to St Fillans, the Scottish National Party’s Ms Roseanna Cunningham, SNP candidate for Perthshire South & Kinross-shire, praised a new art trail linking a number of locations in the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park.

 

Speaking following her visit, Ms Cunningham said:

 

“As part of the Scottish Government’s programme of Focus Years, 2016 was designated the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design and one local contribution to that is a new arts trail beginning at St Fillans at the iconic Still – or the Mirror Man as he is known locally - which stands in the shallows at the edge of Loch Earn.

 

“BLiSS is a series of creative works and ornamental features linking the villages which Loch Earn Tourism Information group (LETi) represents - Balquhidder, Lochearnhead, Strathyre and St Fillans.

 

“These towns’ initials plus the central ‘i’ representing both innovation and the international tourist information symbol give the art trail its name.

 

“The trail includes works by established artists, such as Crieff’s June McEwan, whose willow creations have become very familiar locally, as well as works by Perth College students and young architects.

 

“Good public art enhances the local environment and contributes to a sense of community and - whether thought-provoking or simply quirky – can help to entice visitors to the area.  The BLiSS art trail is a fantastic addition to the area’s attractions.”
