Aegir the Wild Dolphin

The Wild Dolphin trail is a series of 50 dolphin sculptures which have been painted by local artists, creating an arts trail around the city of Aberdeen. Click here for a map of the trail or visit the app store for the Wild Dolphins app.

At the end of the 10 week trail the dolphins will be auctioned to raise funds for the Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital and to protect the local wild dolphins.

NorthLink Ferries have sponsored a dolphin, named Aegir, who you’ll find in Aberdeen Railway Station. He is decorated with a Viking ship, fish and waves and he has also been bejewelled! Aegir was created in Orkney by artists Gina Ramsay and Sheila Fleet and we think he looks very handsome indeed!

Take a look at Aegir’s journey below:
