The BookBench Trail

Aberdeen, Moray, Orkney and Shetland
Summer 25
Clan Cancer Support

Clan Cancer Support is delivering a brand new sculpture trail in 2025 which will see giant BookBench sculptures appearing in the north-east of Scotland, Moray, Orkney and Shetland.

The trail marks the charity’s third Wild in Art project with Light the North (2021) and The Big Hop Trail (2023) raising a combined total of more than £520,000 for Clan services.

Clan chose the BookBench sculpture, which depicts an open book, because of the charity’s lifeline listening support service which enables anyone impacted by a cancer diagnosis to open up and tell their story. The sculptures will also encourage people to take time to reflect on their wellbeing as they enjoy discovering artwork when the trail is live from July to September in 2025.
