Volunteers of all ages enjoyed a day of arts and crafts in the Geopark information centre at the Lochranza Centre last Saturday.
They were crafting a Gaelic Tree Alphabet mural which will be installed shortly outside in the Geopark garden, where they are planting some specimens of Arran’s native trees and shrubs.
The Gaelic Tree Alphabet, or Celtic Tree Alphabet, has each letter assigned a tree or plant name. The Gaelic alphabet has 18 letters represented by 18 tree species.
Arran Geopark project coordinator Malcolm Wilkinson said: ‘We would like to thank all the amazing group of volunteers for their paintbrush skills and to Forestry and Land Scotland for kindly donating the wooden boards – old green Forestry Commission signs that have now been upcycled.’
The information centre and garden are open to the public every day.
