Location: Royal Mile, Edinburgh, 2019. #BigBucketTrail

The process

One of the most powerful forms of inspiration is from our world cultures.

We have a beautiful and rich diverse mix of people from different backgrounds and walks of life, sometimes all we need to do for inspiration is look around us.

Be inspired by others.


The reaction from the public

#CulturalCelebrations Oor Wullie was very popular on this trail and hundreds of locals and tourists took photos with the sculpture and shared them across social media.
