Oor Jimi
Oor Jimi
One of the artworks in the Oor Wullie's BIG Bucket Trail. Oor Jimi, created by Betti Moretti is located at the south end of Brunswick Street, Glasgow.


The Jimi Hendrix Experience performed in Glasgow not once, but twice. Hendrix literally brought the house down with his performance by setting fire to his famous guitar on stage. ‘Oor Jimi’ is in honour of Scotland’s rich music history, complete with a replica of Jimi’s legendary guitar! See [LinkExternal link].
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.
