Murals of Invergordon

Invergordon a small town on the shores of Cromarty Firth in Highlands, Scotland, was once a booming town with a Naval base, an Aluminium melting plant and oil rigs fabrication/maintenance yard. However due to one reason or other these employment giving units gradually closed and by the end of 20th century the town had started decaying.

In January 2002 a voluntary group known as ‘Invergordon off the wall’ was set up suggest ways and means to regenerate the town. One of the projects taken up by this group was creation of an outdoor art gallery where in several murals, depicting the history and culture of the area were painted.

First mural was created in 2004 and till date murals at eleven locations have been painted. The murals painted so far are;
  1. The Loch
  2. Volunteer Spirit
  3. Pipes and Drams
  4. Heritage of the Firth
  5. Gather Round
  6. Our Legacy
  7. A Century of Sport
  8. Fire! Fire!
  9. Saltburn’s Past
  10. The Way We Were
  11. The Long Goodbye
The design and subject of each mural was decided by a community group who interacted with the professional artists engaged to create the art work.

Most of the murals are located on the main “High Street” or on the streets just off the “High Street”. The entire route which is about half a mile long has been named ‘The Mural Trail’ and same was inaugurated in 2007 by Princess Royal (Princess Anne).

The route and its murals have become a hit not only amongst the local populace but also with the tourists who visit Scotland. In the words of their own web site;

" ..... 400,000 - 500,000 visitors per year come to view the murals….. Employment has increased due to the opening of 200 new businesses and morale and pride in their town has increased dramatically."

A brief description of each mural along with link for more information as well as link for Google Street View of the mural is given below;

Artist - Tracey Shough (2008)

The mural depicts the story of 4th Battalion Seaforth Highlanders (51st Division) who departed for France in 1939 and most of them were taken prisoner in June 1940 by Rommel's army at St Valery en Caux.

Two panels of the mural are on the interior walls of main platform and other two are on the passage way leading to the Station. The panels show their departure, the farewell by family, their life in the battlefield and ultimate capture.
