Mermaid of the North

Balintore's impressive Mermaid of the North sculpture has left Copenhagen's world-famous Little Mermaid statue standing. The 10ft bronze temptress on the shore of the Seaboard village dwarfs her more celebrated Scandinavian counterpart, the small stature of which is said to surprise many a first-time visitor. The Mermaid of the North is part of a series of sculptures which have attracted visitors from across the Highlands and beyond to the Fearn Peninsula. The rock itself is called ‘Clach Dubh’ meaning black rock in Gaelic. The mermaid is part of the Seaboard Sculpture trail which weaves it’s way through the village.
