BLiSS Arts Trail links Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park

1 Min

Rambling around the idyllic setting of Loch Lomond the last thing you’d expect to see is a multi-coloured bull but thanks to a brand new initiative that’s exactly what walkers can discover. In celebration of The Year of Innovation Architecture and Design, Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park are now linked by the BLiSS Arts Trail – a series of multimedia artworks and installations.

In total 13 creative installations and 10 ornamental features from a range of artists and architects now link the villages of Balquhidder, Lochearnhead, Strathyre and St Fillans.

Highlights of the trail include a magnificent mirrored steel sculpture which stands in the waters of Loch Earn and a stunning glass scenery-viewing box which disappears into its surroundings.
