About the Trail
Scotties by the Sea features 30 giant Scottie Dog sculptures, forming a free, 10-week art trail of discovery for local people and visitors of all ages to explore and enjoy.
Each sculpture is sponsored by local businesses, community groups and education organisations. They are decorated by local artists and communities – all designed to celebrate our vibrant history, culture, and coastal heritage.
The sculptures are displayed in locations across St Andrews and along the Northeast Fife Coast, where visitors can use a bespoke map and mobile app to help them navigate the trail, discover new places and unlock exciting rewards and discounts provided by sponsors.
Following a farewell weekend where they will be shown together, the Scottie sculptures will be auctioned at a special event to raise funds that will support our charity partner, 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.Download the Map
Auction for Maggie’s
At the end of the trail the Scotty Dog sculptures will be auctioned to raise much needed funds for Maggie’s.
Your financial support will help Maggie’s employ cancer-support specialists, pay for nutrition courses, fund a benefits advisor, organise walking and exercise groups, and generally support the 15,000 visits we have from local people with cancer and their families.Find out more
