Oor Rod
Oor Rod
One of the artworks in the Oor Wullie's BIG Bucket Trail. Oor Rod, created by Graham Farquhar is located outside TGI Fridays on Buchanan Street, Glasgow.

The world knows Rod Stewart to be a man of many facets: the rock star; the songwriter; the father of eight; the full-time curator of one of history’s most famous haircuts; the tireless Scottish football fan and the football player. Complete with his tartan jacket, signature hairstyle and his most famous song lyrics around the bucket, Oor Rod pays tribute to one of the country’s best selling music artists of all time.

Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail
Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail ran for 11 weeks from 17th June 2019 – 30th August 2019. There were 200 Oor Wullies, mainly in the Scottish cities of Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness. Scotland’s first ever national public art trail aimed to raise awareness and vital funds for Scotland’s children’s hospital charities.
There was also an Oor Wullie’s WEE Bucket Trail with over 300 wee Oor Wullie sculptures. These had been designed and created by wee yin’s and big yin’s at nurseries, schools and community groups.
Funds raised through the trail will support Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity, Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity, and the ARCHIE Foundation.
At the end of the Trail period, the individual art works will be sold off at auctions in the five host cities.
