UK’s first ‘fine art crawl’ to launch in Edinburgh on Saturday

Edinburgh will be hosting what is being called the UK’s first ‘fine art crawl’ on Saturday.

Tobermory Distillery is introducing their guided tour around the city which is aimed towards those who love art and a dram. The two-hour long tours will visit bars that have been transformed into pop up galleries, including Usquabae, Mather’s, The Green Room and Ryan’s Bar.

The tour will be a multi-sensory experience with a selection of Scottish whiskeys and gins. Foods such as cheeses, oysters, smoked salmon and haggis will be on offer at each stop while attendees can take in some fine art. Edinburgh artists such as Yulia Allan and Ann Cowan, amongst others, will have their work displayed across the venues with some artists attending to give first-hand insights into their pieces.

Speaking on the event, Tobermory Distillery Manager Stephen Woodcock said: “The passion for art in nature is reflected in the spirits that we craft at the distillery, and that’s why we’re introducing the first ‘fine art crawl’ at Edinburgh Art Fair, for art lovers, whisky and gin lovers to experience”.

Edinburgh’s Art Fair is celebrating their 15th anniversary and starts today until Sunday. The fair will be showcasing over 500 artists from around the globe and can be found at the Edinburgh Corn exchange.

The ‘fine art crawl’ will start at The Green Room and will be running from Saturday 23rd – 24th from 2:30 p.m. on each day with tickets priced £15.
