New sculpture in Lang Craigs Woodland
This is one of several wooden sculptures that had recently been installed alongside the paths in this area. Behind the photographer's position is a clearing with an information panel beside it: NS4276 : Lang Craigs Woodland. A view of the sculpture from the opposite site makes this clear, as well as showing the adjacent path: NS4276 : Lang Craigs Woodland: low-level path.

Other wooden items that were installed at the same time are shown in NS4276 : New sculpture in Lang Craigs Woodland, NS4276 : New sculpture in Lang Craigs Woodland, and NS4276 : Path with new bench.

In the right background of the present picture is the Welcome Cairn, which has been here for longer than the foreground sculpture: NS4276 : The Welcome Cairn: detail / NS4276 : Lang Craigs Woodland: the Welcome Cairn.
