This hairdressers trend setting coo sports Crazy Color pink and purple hair colours. The coo was designed by metal artist Kev Paxton. The ArtFe smiddy team at Ratho helped to complete the look along with a graffiti artist. Brunas was named after tbe man who invented Crazy Color hair dye products. Kev Paxton's metal sculptures can be found around the UK including on the BLiSS trail at in robroycountry +Kim Proven​​ where Brunas has popped up. Kev Paxton's work has been enjoyed by new fans on the BBC Money For Nothing programme where he turns scrapped metal objects into functional creative form. Amazing transformations. Worth watching the play back episodes on BBCiplayer. Brunas is a pop up #BLiSStrail sculpture so come and take photos while you can. He is visible from the A85 in our garden Lochearnhead. Enjoy and please share pics here or on Twitter and Facebook @Robroycountry

Love this drawing of a view from our pet friendly
holiday cottage, Little Briar, at Briar Cottages Lochearnhead on the banks of Loch Earn.

It was drawn by Canadian author alias Marinda Skynner , who is writing a period novel based in Scotland having researched her ancestors here. See

The drawing shows Briar Cottage thatched roof, Edinample Castle, Loch Earn and Stuc A Chroin Munro with snow on top. The view from Little Briar Cottage.

Love it! Compare with photos at +Holiday Lettings +The Good Dog Guide +scottishfieldmag +LomondTrossachs +Loch Earn +Historic Environment Scotland +Ancestry

Pop Up outdoor art at its best. Look what arrived on the award winning BLiSS trail of art installations in Lochearnhead today?

Meet Brunas the @CrazyColor Pink Coo by artist Kev Paxton and his ArtFe blacksmith team.

The colourful coo is just back from a hair show, modelling for who offer 27 hair colour shades "For The Fearless"

What fun to contrast the funky colours of this trendy hair and beauty model coo with the natural hues of traditional, thatched, Briar Cottage and the timeless setting of Loch Earn from its garden.
