SCENES from Kirkintilloch and Bishopbriggs will feature in what is expected to be the world’s longest tapestry.

The Antonine Wall and the Forth and Clyde Canal are among 160 key subjects chosen for The Great Tapestry of Scotland.

It is one of the biggest community arts projects ever to take place in Scotland and will use more than 30 miles of woolen yarn.

The project will take over a year to complete and the finished tapestry will go on display from August 2013.
