The Andy Scott Sculpture Trail is an unprecedented concentration of works by an international sculptor Andy Scott, alumni of Glasgow School of Art.
This distinctive public art is located throughout Clackmannanshire and is easily accessible from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth and Dundee in less than sixty minutes by car. Stretching from Alloa Town Centre to the surrounding villages quaint villages of Clackmannanshire, including Tullibody, Clackmannan, Sauchie and Alva, the trail encompasses six unique works entitled The Journey’s End, I Can See for Miles, River Spirit, Air Spirit, Fox Boy, and Lifeline. They feature, amongst many others, a boy sculpture which perfectly represents this region blending the traditional with the modern, and a man and woman figure standing proudly on the sides of steel with their hands bridging two shores. Holding a crown, the male figure represents Clackmannanshire’s heraldic coat of arms while the female holds a draped circle of twenty three stars representing solidarity and harmony with the people of the European Union.
In preparation for his work, Andy usually involves extensive consultations with community groups and other key stakeholders, helping the work to achieve a broad public appeal and his approach combines traditional sculptural dexterity with contemporary fabrication techniques.
