A giant egg-like pod will appear in Dundee’s City Square on Monday when the National Trust for Scotland invites everyone to tell the nation what they love about our country.
The futuristic-looking pod is taking to the road as part of the charity’s For the Love of Scotland campaign which launched in April, with a film featuring celebrities – from Gerard Butler and Brian Cox to Judy Murray and Evelyn Glennie – describing what they love about Scotland.
Visitors throughout the day will be invited to enter the specially-made pod to view the film and then record their own thoughts about what makes Scotland such a special place.
Sitting almost two and half metres high, the pod can seat five people at a time and contains a tablet computer which shows the film and records responses.
The best contributions might make it on to the trust’s website.
It also gives people the chance to take a unique National Trust for Scotland selfie, if they like.
Mark Bishop, director of customer and cause at the National Trust for Scotland, said: “We’re excited to get the people of Dundee involved in our For the Love of Scotland campaign.
“The trust protects some of Dundee and Angus’s most beautiful built and natural treasures so we hope to hear a few familiar names cropping up, like Barry Mill, and the House of Dun.
‘‘Our members, donors, volunteers, visitors and staff help protect these special places for everyone to enjoy and our new campaign will help us shout louder about the important role we play in caring for Scotland now and forever.
“We’re here to protect our natural and national treasures for everyone to enjoy.”
