Wildlife Mural

Glasgow-based street artist Bobby McNamara, better known as Rogue Oner, is the master behind some of the most iconic works along the city’s Mural Trail. One of his few works in Edinburgh however, is this mural located on a set of shipping containers used by the Bridge 8 outdoor hub. It’s also away from the city’s tourism hub. 

The mural depicts some of the wildlife native to Scotland, from red squirrels to hares, many of them can be seen moseying around the Union Canal not far from their portraits. While these types of murals are not uncommon, what makes the “Wildlife Mural” so notable is its popularity.
