BLiSS Trail Art Installations
The BLiSS Trail of art installations and ornamental features linking Balquhidder, Lochearnhead, Strathyre and St Fillans launched on 27th April 2016 with an on-line map including where to eat and drink along the way. The trail won LETi a regional Scottish Thistle Awards trophy for "Working Together In Tourism" in 2016/2017 and the group picked up a second trophy for Innovation In Tourism 2017/2018 for securing BLiSS trail as a permanent attraction. Three additional sculptures celebrating Scotland's national tourism theme Year of History Heritage and Archaeology 2017 were added. LETi also launched a BLiSS history map highlighting fascinating facts taken from the history of the four villages. The trail is now permanent with set pieces and a couple of visiting sculptire spots.
