Walking Group - Week 20: Stirling University

Stirling University is located several miles outside the city and is set in beautiful grounds with views to the Wallace Monument, Stirling Castle and Dumyat Hill. On the day our walking group went to visit there was a sprinkling of snow on the hills and the trees were displaying their full autumnal colours.

As well as a wonderful location, the university has a fabulous art collection which is on display throughout the corridors of Pathfoot building. One of the first pieces the group saw on entering the building was a painting made by Project Ability tutor Sharon Quigley whose work we went to see in Bellahouston Park on our last outing. As well as the more long term displays of works by Scottish luminaries such as Alasdair Gray, JD Fergusson and Norman McLaren there are areas put aside for shorter term exhibitions and our group found a small exhibition by Artlink and Reachout With Art In Mind along with a show of photographic works by Calum Colvin that included a couple of stereoscopic pieces to be viewed through 3d spectacles.

After a visit to the cafeteria the group went for a further walk in the grounds before returning to the city and catching the bus home.
