Oor Wullie’s Big Bucket Trail

I’m sure many of you living in Scotland, will have heard about Oor Wullie’s Big Bucket Trail, or even come across one of the 200 sculptures dotted around our cities.

Designed to raise awareness and vital funds for Scotland’s children’s hospitals, this first-ever national public art trail takes to the streets of Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverness, with life-size sculptures, individually designed, by over 100 artists, to reflect life in today’s culturally diverse Scotland.

Like many a youngster growing up in Scotland, Oor Wullie, and the Broon’s, became a big part of my life, therefore I find the sculptures delightful and as I had photographed almost all of Glasgow’s street art, I decided to try and capture as many as I could, the results can be seen below.


If you want to get involved yourself, there is an Oor Wullie’s Big Bucket app, in iTunes or Google Play, to help you locate and record the ones you find.

While out and about with a German friend, we found even more Oor Wullies, she was interested in the story behind them and quickly joined in photographing them.
