Iconic Monarch of the Glen painting to tour Scotland

The 2017 LinkedGolfers World Hickory Festival,  Kilspindie Golf Club, Aberlady, East Lothian, Scotland.   A field of international amateur and professional golfers teed-off today, Tuesday 3rd October at Kilspindie, Aberlady in the 13th LinkedGolfers World Hickory Festival.   This year the event is being held over Scotlands Golf Coasts unique assembly of hickory-bespoke links featuring some of the worlds best layouts.  Hickory Golf is played with original or pre-1936 replica hickory shafted clubs and yet skilful players such as last years winner and former Masters Champ Sandy Lyle are still able to hit their drives close to 300-yards yards and record scores of as little as 67, although this has only been achieved twice in the tournaments 12-year history.

An iconic painting currently homed in the Capital will tour Scotland to give more people a chance to see it.

The Monarch of the Glen by Sir Edwin Landseer was acquired in March by the National Galleries of Scotland following a $4 million fundraising campaign.

The 1851 painting, which depicts a stag against a backdrop of misty mountains, will visit Inverness Museum and Art Gallery and will also be shown at Perth Museum and Art Gallery, Paisley Museum and Art Gallery and Kirkcudbright Galleries. The tour will take place until May next year.
