Welcome to the Frank Bruce Sculpture Trail, an extraordinary series of sculptures by Frank Bruce on Scottish culture, and our relationship with others. This is an unofficial website celebrating larger works by artist Frank Bruce. You may notice that the sculptures are in differing states of decay. Allowing the sculptures to age is intentional, Frank Bruce intended them to return to the earth from where they came; not only made from the trees and stone around us, but part of our natural cycle of birth, life and decay.
Please contact FCS with any comments or suggestions.
This website is not part of FCS, but an independent resource:
The Frank Bruce Sculpture Trail is located 13km (8 miles) from both Kingussie and Aviemore, and is around 200m north-west of Feshie Bridge.
By car and bicycle:
From Aviemore, drive towards Cairngorm Mountain on the B970, turn right just before the Rothiemurchus Centre signposted B970 to Coylumbridge. The last time I was abroad I used a cheap car rental Lanzarote Airport website and I see that by scrolling on the booking engine there you can also find Scottish car rental. After Feshie Bridge there is a turning on the right marked as a FCS car-park. Park there, and walk up a steep, short path to the sculptures. You can find more cheap car hire at http://www.carhirecomparison.ie/
By train & bus:
Scottish City Link and Megabus both serve Kingussie and Aviemore. The sculptures are accessible using the mainline Glasgow/Edinburgh to Inverness line. Get off at Kingussie (if you have a bicycle or want to walk) and turn right onto the B970, passing the historic Ruthven Barracks, through Insch, and before you get to Feshie Bridge there’s the turning into the FCS car-park on the left. Getting off at Aviemore, take the 31 bus towards Cairngorm Mountain, getting off at the Rothiemurchus Centre, and walk along the back road (no path) B970 signposted to Coylumbridge to the sculpture trail.
Accessibility & facilities:
FCS have made the path around the sculptures accessible, a good hardcore track with gentle gradients. There is parking reserved at the entrance to the sculptures for disabled people. Picnic bench in the walled garden. Nearest public toilets are in Aviemore and Kingussie. There is a small shop at Kincraig 2km from the Trail. Another option is Automatic Car Hire for those who find manual difficult to drive.
The Trail is managed by Forestry Commission Scotland.
