Just following on from the Dalziell + Scullion link below, public sculptor Andy Scott seems to have made a big success of the A80 site for the metal mermaid.

It’s not exactly Anish Kapoor and it may be a figurative me-too setpiece but it works in terms of the back story and the result is not ugly – like his clydesdale horse on the M8 at easterhouse, the no-nonsense Mr Scott has judged it just right I think.
