Maggie’s Penguin Parade in Dundee

You can have fun seeing  the 80 giant penguins in Maggies Penguin Parade in the Scottish city of Dundee and the surrounding area. The sculpture trail is a charity initiative in support of Maggie’s Centre in Dundee, where support is offered for people with cancer and their families.

I spotted my first penguin at Barnhill Rock Gardens in the Dundee suburb of Broughty Ferry. It was the Sunrise penguin.

I stopped in Dundee a couple of days later. Outside the Science Centre was the Pinguis Anatomica.

The Bagpipes and Flippers sculpture was located outside Dundee  Contemporary Arts.

The very appropriately named Baltic Builder sat by the barriers at the new V&A building on the banks of the Tay Estuary, due to open on 15 September 2018.

All the penguins will be assembled in Slessor Gardens on 23 and 24 September 2018, before being auctioned off for charity on 24 September 2018.
