Two haggis sculptures were put on display at Edinburgh Airport today to celebrate Burns Night

The pair of larger than life haggis were unveiled at the Airport but ran off in the direction of Edinburgh Trams.

Giant Thistles artist and blacksmith Kev Paxton, the creator of the two, said: “Dougal has been an absolute pleasure to work with but Flo is a feisty wee sow – and to be honest I’m not surprised she’s gone awol.

“Poor Dougal is heartbroken and has been reciting Rabbie Burns inspired poems in a bid to try and convince Flo to come back to him; but she’s wild, so who knows what will happen. I only hope she won’t end up on plate being piped into a Burns Supper tonight.”
