The Carnoustie Butterfly

The Carnoustie Butterfly emerged from the Caterpillar which began life as a single stone. It was placed at the seafront during the early stages of the first Covid-19 Lockdown.  In the months that followed, over 1460 stones were added as locals and visitors came together to share their collective support and experiences of living through a global pandemic.

A Symbol of Hope

 Over 60 organisations and groups are represented along with more than a thousand stones contributed by individuals and families.
