The Secretary of State for Scotland was in France today to inaugurate a Charles Rennie Mackintosh Trail in the Pyrenees Orientales.
It features 30 reproductions of landscapes by the renowned Scottish artist and architect which are situated in the area he painted them, including the Tet and Tech Valleys. He moved to the town of Port-Vendres in 1923.
Michael Moore also unveiled a bronze relief of the artist by the British sculptor Jane Robbins.
It is thought around 50,000 visitors a year will visit the three interpretation The Rennie Mackintosh Trail centres. The project is the brainchild of the Scottish film producer Robin Crichton.
