A giant egg-like pod will appear at the Gordon Castle Highland Games in Fochabers this Sunday, which will allow visitors to describe what they love the most about Scotland.

The launch of the campaign by the National Trust for Scotland in April included celebrities such as actors Gerard Butler and Brian Cox, as well as Tennis coach, Judy Murray and percussionist, Evelyn Glennie.

Sitting almost two and half meters high, the pod can seat five people at a time and contains a tablet computer which shows a film and records responses. The best responses might even make it on the National Trust of Scotland’s website.

Mark Bishop, director of customer and cause at the National Trust for Scotland, said: “We’re excited to get the people of Fochabers and Moray involved in our For the Love of Scotland campaign and hear what they love about Scotland.

“Our members, donors, volunteers, visitors and staff help protect these special places for everyone to enjoy and our new campaign will help us shout louder about the important role we play in caring for Scotland now and forever.

“We’re about coastlines and castles, art and architecture, wildlife and wilderness. We’re here to protect our natural and national treasures for everyone to enjoy.”
