Nessy: Giraffe of the Day

Sculpture Name: Nessy

Artist Name: Megan Heather Smith-Evans

Location: The Shore

Sponsor Name: Ocean Terminal

When tattoo artist Megan Heather Smith-Evan heard of Giraffe About Town, there was one thing that sprung straight to her mind. With the same long neck of the famous Scottish legend of the Loch Ness Monster, she absolutely had to do a Nessy design! 

Based in Birmingham, Megan is a tattooist and artist who has painted over 30 sculptures for various trails across the UK, raising over £100k for charity. 

Sponsored by Ocean Terminal, Nessy has left the Scottish Highlands to grace the streets of Edinburgh, swimming around to join the other giraffes this year and spend time with the public! There is no need to travel all the way to the Scottish Highlands this summer to search for the majestic creature, as now you can see Nessy right here at The Shore. 

Sitting on Leith’s waterfront overlooking the Firth of Forth, Ocean Terminal is regarded by many as Edinburgh’s most relaxing shopping environment with a mix of retail, leisure and dining options. Its spacious and calming ambience is supported by a mix of coffee bars, 24 hour gym, 12 screen Vue cinema, skatepark and top tourist attraction, The Royal Yacht Britannia.
