TWELVE unique and striking totem pole sculptures are being been placed across Aberdeen city centre as shoppers and visitors are invited to find them and solve the Christmas puzzle.

Created by local chainsaw carver Garry Shand, the carvings depict the popular carol The Twelve Days of Christmas. The sculpture trail goes live on Sunday and runs through to 24 December.

First launched in 2016, the trail is popular with all ages and this year there’s the added challenge of a Christmas puzzle to solve. Download the trail map from www.aberdeencity.gov.uk/christmas and find the letter located on each sculpture to spell out a popular Christmas song.

Aberdeen City Council culture spokesperson Councillor Marie Boulton said: “The Twelve Days of Christmas sculpture trail is an exciting part of the festive events line-up. The carvings are a wonderful tribute to the famous carol that brings festive cheer across the city.

“Throughout the year we see Aberdeen landmarks brought to life during our lively and distinctive events programme. The Christmas sculpture trail is a wonderful element that activates city centre spaces by taking visitors on a tour of Aberdeen and encourages them to stay longer in each area, helping to boost the local economy.”

Visitors are encouraged to share their pictures from the trail using #ABDN12days.
