An official launch event will be held for the latest art piece in the national park.

A trail compromising of 13 creative installations and 10 ornamental features linking villages on the north side of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park will be launched next week.

The trail – named the BLiSS arts trail after the villages it links of Balquhidder, Lochearnhead, Strathyre and St Fillans – is opening on Wednesday, April 27.

The four villages are situated in the Breadalbane sector of the scenic Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park around Loch Earn, Loch Lubnaig, Loch Voil and Loch Doine.

The area is known as Rob Roy Country locally.

The eclectic collection features works by artists Rob Mulholland, Kev Paxton, Heather Gray, June McEwan, Iain Chalmers, Lynne Schroder and Jeremy Cunningham, and architects Ruairidh Moir, Angus Ritchie and Daniel Tyler.

A group of third-year art students from Perth College, University of The Highlands and Islands is developing a conceptual art team project for the trail.

The multimedia artworks and installations range from a vibrant multi-coloured metal bull and a stag crafted from willow wicker to a magnificent mirrored steel sculpture standing in the waters of Loch Earn and a stunning glass scenery-viewing box which disappears into its beautiful surroundings.

The name BLiSS is derived from the capital letters of the four villages, with the central i representing both the international tourist information symbol and the innovation of #IAD2016.

The new arts trail has been developed by LETi, the Loch Earn Tourism Information group.
