The BLiSS Sculpture Trail

There is a unique sculpture trail to be discovered and explored in the heart of Rob Roy Country

This is where Perthshire, Stirlingshire & The Trossachs meet in Central Scotland – four villages of Balquhidder, Lochearnhead, St. Fillans and Strathyre all linked by a fabulous new sculpture trail.

Why BLiSS? Well, it takes its name from the villages: Balquidder, Lochearnhead, Strathyre and St Fillans – the “i” standing for both tourist information and innovation to reflect the Trail’s development in Scotland’s Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design.

A venture developed by the Loch Earn Tourism Information group (LETi), it features 13 incredible art installations, all designed and created by local artists and architects. And for those planning to visit and explore, the group’s website has a wealth of information on places to stay, eat and drink. You can also stay – and book a photography course to make even more of your time in this corner of Scotland.

The works include a life-sized, multi-coloured metal bull, a mirrored cube, a miniature mill house, a soaring eagles, stag, bicycle seats and a totem pole …
