Go Nuts with Highland Hospice

We are delighted to announce that the first ever Highland-wide Art Trail has arrived! Art Trails have been springing up all over the UK in the last few years and we’ve been inspired to run our own which sees 23 five foot Red Squirrels in locations across the region.  Download a map of all locations here.

    We have collaborated with local wildlife sculptor Scott Gleed and a wide range of amateur and professional artists to create 23 five foot Red Squirrel sculptures. Each is sponsored by a local business to whom we are hugely grateful for their support. You can find all their locations on this website or download the map for the route and make your plan to visit all of them. The trail will run until September and will culminate in November 2019 with a farewell display and charity auction, where they will be sold to raise funds to support our Hospice care in the Highlands.

    Keep an eye on the Go Nuts Facebook page as well as the Highland Hospice Facebook and Instagram pages for regular updates.

    Read about the inspiration for each squirrel below along with a Google map link to their location, or download a map below.

    Thanks to our Squirrel Sponsors

    A huge thanks to all the businesses, estates and individuals who sponsored a squirrel on our Art Trail.  Each squirrel came as a blank canvas and our sponsors chose from designs submitted by local artists. We could not have pulled this amazing trail together without your commitment and support.

    Thanks to our Artists

    We were delighted with the response to our call for designs. Professional artists and skilled amateurs all answered the call and submitted some excellent designs.  The final choice for each squirrel was made by the sponsor and the end result is stunning.
