Trout at Transition art trail now open!

This morning we opened the Trout at Transition art trail as part of Biggar Little Festival. The art trail is the final installation from our first primary-to-secondary school transition project which involved artist Holly Keasey and the learning community of Biggar High School. We are delighted with how the installation turned out and would love to hear your thoughts. The trail runs along the Biggar Burn between Burnbraes Park and Biggar High School. A copy of trail map can be found here.

Trout at Transition art trail opening

An art trail consisting of work created during Trout at Transition is to open during Biggar Little Festival on Saturday 17th October.

The trail, which marks the final piece of work from Trout at Transition, will be composed from ceramic tiles that pupils created in Biggar High School’s Art Department with artist Holly Keasey. It will run along the burn between Burnbraes Park and Biggar High School; you can download the trail map here.
