THE Travelling Gallery in Scotland is a work of art..............quite literally!

For 16 weeks each spring and autumn, a bus decorated in yellow, white and grey, with scenes of bee hives and people, busy building, can be seen travelling around Scotland.

Rather like the phone box in ''Doctor Why'', with its high tech interior, the bust has a surprise in store:

When you enter, you immediately find yourself in a bijou art gallery with the latest audio-visual equipment.

The Travelling Gallery was formed in 1978 by Creative Scotland, which continues to fund it, with the support of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and with the aim of making art accessible and inclusive to the most outlying areas and city suburbs devoid of galleries.

It exhibits contemporary art on important moral and social issues, and also organises supporting educational workshops. [Courtesy ChurchTimes. Co. UK]
