Scotties by the Sea 2023
Unleashing the Dogs
St Andrews Business Improvement District (BID), in collaboration with creative producers Wild in Art, present Scotties by the Sea – a large-scale public art trail set to come St Andrews and the Northeast Fife Coastal Community next September.
Decorated by local artists and communities, more than 30 giant Scottie sculptures will appear across St Andrews & The Northeast Fife Coast, forming a free 10-week art trail of discovery for locals and visitors of all ages to explore and enjoy.
Scotties by the Sea is designed to celebrate the communities, culture, and creativity of Northeast Fife, whilst also raising money for Maggie’s Everyone’s Home of Cancer Care – working locally and nationally providing free cancer support and information in centres across the UK and online.
