Cool Cat About Town Gets Statue

Lost in all the reporting about the Scottish independence vote was this important event, the unveiling of the statue by David Annan for Hamish McHamish; local St. Andrews celebrity. Over the years Hamish’s fame has been growing about town, he now has his own facebook page and a book about him. However, I can’t help but suspect that the desire to immortalise Hamish may have had an undercurrent of competitive spirit with Edinburgh and their statue to a mythical dog.

Here’s a nice photo collage of the unveiling; I like how Hamish even has his own logo:

They managed to get a shot of Hamish inspecting the statue:

I thought I’d round out the post with a nice artistic shot of Hamish in his environment:
