GO NUTS WITH HIGHLAND HOSPICE!

DOWNLOAD YOUR MAP HERE and have an adventure this Summer!

The Go Nuts Art Trail - a Highland-wide Art Trail has arrived with 23 five foot Red Squirrels on display in locations across the Highlands!  The uniquely decorated squirrels have each been painted by a local artist and are sponsored by a variety of organisations.

Inverness BID are delighted to support this fantastic event which encourages people to find the squirrels and tick them off as they go along.  There are 5 squirrels to find in the city centre itself with 7 in Inverness and the others are located all over the Highlands, going as far as north as Caithness.

BID's sponsored "Coo" Squirrel can be found at the end of Church Street (beside the Steeple) and is beautifully wrapped in drawings created by Grantown Grammar School pupils of another iconic Scottish animal, the Highland Cow!  Artist Angus Grant painted the drawings on to the squirrel and the final sculpture really does look amazing and we are delighted to see so much interest in it from both locals and visitors.  

Free maps are also available to pick up from Hospice shops along with other merchandise on sale including sticker books, bands and tote bags.

When the trail ends in September, the squirrels will be gathered together for a farewell display before taking centre stage at a Highland Hospice charity auction in November.
