Oor Scottish Stories
Storytelling has a long and rich tradition in Scotland. Since Oor Wullie is the lead character in all his stories, Gabrielle thought he would be the perfect ʻpersonʼ to tell the traditional stories of Scotland. Some of the older stories are better known than others, such as The Kelpies or The Selkies, and appear alongside lesser know tales such as Auld Croovie or Whupity Stoorie. Wullie is Painted entirely in blue and white to celebrate Delft and the old trade and fishing links that brought us so many of those stories.
