Birchwood Highland will be at this year's Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival
this weekend with this beautiful heart! It will become the repository for the Highlands' hopes, dreams, loves and wishes as we'll be asking everyone to add a lovelock or cloot to the structure over the course of the festival.
The heart will be the largest piece of public art in the Highlands for years and we aim for it to be a positive, inspirational symbol. 1 in 4 of us will experience mental ill health each year, so it's an issue close to all of our hearts. Birchwood Highland's Big Belladrum Heart has been produced in partnership with Joe Gibbs and the great team at Belladrum Festival, created by the fabulously skilled crew at Serimax in Evanton, using material from Grampian Steel in Oldmeldrum and engineering expertise from Fairhurst in Inverness. Thank you guys!
