Repairing the stag at Glenesk Retreat



Have your say

WILLOW sculptor Trevor Leat spent a day in Glenesk repairing the beautiful stag which he created for the Glenesk Retreat and Folk Museum a few years ago.

The magnificent beast, proudly welcoming people to this community owned and run visitor centre and museum, has weathered some very challenging winters.

Trevor’s work is known throughout Scotland, not least his massive Hogmanay sculpture for Edinburgh’s new year celebrations and the 40 foot Wickerman he makes every year for the Wickerman festival in Dumfries and Galloway.

“My biggest work always seems to get burnt at festivals” he said. “It’s good to also make something like this stag which people can enjoy for many years yet.”

The Retreat, with its restaurant, gift shop, folk museum, nature trail, children’s play area, archive and conference facilities, is open from 12 noon to 6 pm weekends and public holidays to May 13 and from May 14 to October 28 daily.
