This evening, my theme is the unusual but decorative murals painted on the walls of various premises in the town centre of Invergordon which is located about 25 miles north of Inverness in the Scottish Highlands. The images below arose from a community initiative in 2002 to revitalise the town  following the closure of heavy industries in the locality. The artwork was inspired by a similar project in Chemainus in Canada. The work was undertaken by a number of artists not all of whom were locals. Overall, the project is considered a success, assisting in attracting an increasing number of visitors to the town, aided by the proximity of a deep water port which receives 40 plus visitations from cruise ships each year.
