Invergordon murals

The Fleet left town, the smelter closed down, the North Sea oil rig work has slowed down, the sky's often cloudy, and an Indian firm runs the distillery. But the good news is that Invergordon now has time to give a hearty welcome to cruise ships visiting Scotland. Here are ten of the many murals that have brightened up the town.

Fire!

Lifeboat Service

Lifestyles

Welcome!

Museum

Occupations

Parade

Pipers

Sports

Wildlife

Re: Invergordon murals

Very nice series, Cyril.  Public art is so wonderful.  That first one (Fire) almost looked real.  We have a lot in San Francisco - a whole street in the Mission called Balmy Lane.

We were in Scotland once and had a wonderful time in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dunoon.  The people were delightful!

Yes, the fist one almost looked real - and the last one is so 'busy' with the eclectic mix of life.

Well done, thanks.

Great pictures! I enjoy doing mural shots as well as there are many good ones in San Francisco.

Re: Invergordon murals

Nice showing Cyril, I like the King Street one with the Gordon Highlanders piping
away there, takes me back to when I did my basic training at the Highland Light
Infantry Maryhill barracks in WW2.

Re: Invergordon murals

That first mural is brilliant. After staring at it awhile, it finally dawned one me that the onlookers were not real but part of the mural. Thanks for posting, enjoyable and interesting!

Re: Invergordon murals

I should have mentioned that the first mural "Fire" was painted on a surviving wall of the building shown in the mural, which has been resurrected after being gutted.
