The Light the North lighthouse trail took people on a cultural tour of the north-east of Scotland, including Moray, Orkney and Shetland. Visitors discovered over 45 lighthouse sculptures designed and created by some of the area’s most talented artists.
The trail raised awareness and funds for the most significant cancer support charity in the region, CLAN Cancer Support. The charity shined a light of hope in the dark for anyone affected by cancer.
A total of 58 sculptures and four blanks were auctioned and raised a total of £324,200 for CLAN.
Topping the sales was a very special creation, Riding Out The Storm, by artist Rachel Davies. The local community raised money through a public fundraiser and, with members of the Portsoy 75 Club in attendance on the night, it was secured for the town for £13,500.
