Newtonmore Art Project

Murdoch1The Newtonmore Art Project Team (representatives from Newtonmore Business Association, Newtonmore & Vicinity Community Council and Newtonmore Community Woodland Development Trust) are delighted to submit plans to obtain planning permission prior to commissioning Stuart Murdoch, Murdoch Sculpture of Ballindalloch to execute our ambitious plans to transform Newtonmore with an art installation in the centre of the village which celebrates the local heritage, history, culture, sporting prowess, for cyclists, walkers and wheelers along National Cycle Network Route 7 and at the terminus of the Speyside Way. These elements we celebrate are what binds the community together with recreational pursuits and tourism.

NAP - The Story So Far

There is a community belief that the installation will be a focus for the centre of the village which demonstrates the many elements that form our welcoming neighbourhood. This will improve the vista of the Square for the community and visitors. For the active, Newtonmore is thrilled that the Artwork is the Terminus for the Speyside Way and will be a relaxing resting point for cyclists journeying along National Cycle Network Route 7 or walkers tackling the East Highland Way or the many trails and paths around the village.
