Anatomy of Oor Wullie at the Suttie Centre

Anatomy of Oor WullieThe Anatomy of Oor Wullie stands at the entrance to the Suttie Centre on the Foresterhill Campus.

This sculpture was created by Judi Milne and sponsored by the University of Aberdeen. The Scottish language is full of colourful words and phrases and Judi wanted to create a fun but educational reflection of this with her sculpture, and hopes visitors will enjoy learning about our local dialect.

There are a total of 36 statues dotted across Aberdeen and parts of Aberdeenshire. Click on each of the Oor Wullies on the Aberdeen BIG Bucket trail  to see a map showing where you can find them.  Don’t forget to take a selfie and use the #OorSelfie when you spot one!

Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail runs for 11 weeks from 17th June 2019 – 30th August 2019, culminating in a series of Farewell Events and nationwide auctions in each of the five host cities, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverness.

Scotland’s first ever national public art trail aims to unite the country as it raises awareness and vital funds for Scotland’s children’s hospital charities. Funds raised through the trail will support these charities in helping children in hospital across the country.

Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail is a Wild in Art event, and is supported by DC Thomson Media.
