Tour Scotland Video Bear On The Hill Newburgh Fife

Tour Scotland video of the Bear above the new whisky distillery by Lindores Abbey in Newburgh, Fife, Scotland. The bear on the hill was cut for a local festival and community project in 1980. I, Sandy Stevenson, was the organiser of that project, having been the community worker in Newburgh after the Linoleum Factory closed down. The outline was ploughed by Wendell Wilkie a worker from Parkhill Farm, and permission for the outline was given by Mr. Tom Howieson from Parkhill Farm. The bear is a depiction of a stone called the bear stone, from which the Bear Tavern takes its name, and was originally set into the abbot’s residence at Lindores Abbey.
