Outdoor art work by north west Sutherland students has been unveiled, marking the end of an 18-month project.

Secondary two pupils at Kinlochbervie High School have shown their creative skill by etching a number of animal figures onto stones at Blairmore car park.

Located on the single track B801 and north west of Kinlochbervie, the car park is where walkers leave their cars before embarking on the popular four mile hike to beautiful Sandwood bay.

The increasing number of visitors to the area can now look out for the stones, which have been embellished with drawings of an adder, curlew and frog amongst others.

The initiative was part of a coastal community fund project run by the John Muir Trust and involving crofters and the local community.

A spokeswoman said: “The aim was to enhance facilities around the Sandwood bay area.

“The pupils’ art work etched onto stone will hopefully be enjoyed for generations to come.”

The unveiling took place on a blustery afternoon towards the end of last month.
