The Scottish Civic Trust launched a new rainy day activity on Wednesday (24 June) with the first 11 templates in their cut:fold:build paper model series.

The 11 models launched on their website on Wednesday include no less than three significant buildings from Lewis – Stornoway ferry terminal, AnLanntair arts centre and the chapel of St Moluag in Eoropaidh, Ness.

The build-your-own models are available for free download from https://www.scottishcivictrust.org.uk/cut-fold-build/. Ranging from Tesco’s supermarket in Dingwall to a croft-house in Shetland, they’re designed to while away some of the remaining days of self-isolation with constructive activity.

The models were designed as a legacy project from the Doors Open days 2019 and are part-financed by the Outer Hebrides Leader programme. The Scottish Civic Trust are also looking for an artist to jazz up the designs and make them more ‘kid-friendly’.
