AC/DC’s An­gus Young vis­it­ing Loch Earn? Pull the ud­der one!

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - NEWS -

Two new art in­stal­la­tions have been added to the award­win­ning BLiSS art trail link­ing Perthshire and Stir­ling­shire.

An AC/DC-in­spired piece and a met­al­work stag will be in place for three weeks be­fore be­ing moved on.

The Aus­tralian band’s gui­tarist, An­gus Young, has been turned into a tar­tan Highland cow for the run.

Sculp­tor Kev Pax­ton, of ArtFe by K Pax­ton Black­smiths, cre­ated the piece as part of his Rock and Roll Herd of Fame line.

There are eight cows in the herd, in­clud­ing Lemmy the heavy metal chain coo, named af­ter the Motör­head singer.

Lemmy was re­cently pur­chased by a fan at the Royal Highland Show in Ed­in­burgh.

The cow will be placed out­side the Loc­hearn­head Ho­tel.

The sur­round­ing area has links with fa­mous mu­si­cians, in­clud­ing The Bea­tles, who stayed at the Four Sea­sons Ho­tel in St Fil­lans, and Sim­ple Minds, who had a record­ing stu­dio on the A85.

A sec­ond piece, called Jaggy Staggy, will be placed along­side the A84 at Balquhid­der Sta­tion.

Jaggy Staggy is just back from pos­ing at the GWCT Scot­tish Game Fair and, af­ter his three weeks is up, will move on to the Pit­ten­weem Arts Fes­ti­val where he started out life.

Last year, vis­i­tors were in­vited to be a sculp­tor for the day, try­ing their hands with ham­mer and anvil un­der the watch­ful eye of Kev.

Vis­i­tors helped to bend all of the metal bars that give Jaggy his unique ap­pear­ance.

The BLiSS trail links the vil­lages of Balquhid­der, Loc­hearn­head, Strathyre and St Fil­lans, in the heart of what is known to many as Rob Roy Coun­try.
