New arts trail aims to bring extra tourism to rural Forth Valley
A series of new art installations were officially unveiled in the Forth Valley yesterday.
The ‘BLiSS arts trail’ consists of various sculptures and designs, including a multi-coloured metal bull and a glass scenery-viewing box.
The project is aimed at increasing tourism in the rural villages of Balquhidder, Lochearnhead, Strathyre and St Fillans.
The initiative is the brainchild of LETi, the Loch Earn Tourism Information group.
Kim Proven, LETi Chair said: “We wanted to create something new – an attraction that would capture the imagination of people of all ages and become a talking point.
“Our BLiSS trail’s diverse, inspirational artworks and installations should, we feel, do just that.
“Each of the pieces is interesting, thought-provoking and entertaining so we hope the trail will become a real favourite with visitors and make our villages even more attractive as destinations that people will seek out.”
