The bronze sculpture of Auchtermuchty's most famous resident was unveiled by the Rt Hon Earl of Elgin on Friday 12th September 2003.

Although not originally from 'Muchty, Jimmy had long made his home here and to Scots worldwide the names "Auchtermuchty" and "Jimmy Shand" were virtually synonymous.

 




The sculpture by David Annand is located in a small garden just off the Newburgh Road, just up from the Auchtermuchy Community Centre.

"You're frae Auchtermuchty?

Ye'll ken Jimmy Shand then?"





"How do you torture a Scotsman?

Nail his feet to the floor and play a Jimmy Shand record"
