Mr.Bruce whose work is on display.

Many of the items were sculpted in Inshriach plantations on the way out to Jack Drakes.

I first came across him at work...well having a wee rest...during the 1980's. The carvings went off for many years to somewhere in Aberdeenshire and when the old garden area? of Invereshie House became available the gentleman who did the Educational stuff at the Forestry centre in Glenmore arranged for the new site for the collection.

There must have been a wee skirmish and the aftermath is shown here.

Yes it is fine little corner to visit.....I'm in and around the area every week...well apart from when I'm away. :)
I am the 'go for' for Mill Cottage just below where the Sculptures are sited. One of the several cottages that membership of MC of S or what is now Mountaineering Scotland gives access to..
A reasonable place for one of your Forum meets ....room for 14 but probably works best with 8 maybe.
