Iain Chalmers

Winner Iain Chalmers. View media resolution version.

Carving champ Iain Chalmers has won the Carve Carrbridge competition for the second time in a row with his 'Taste of Scotland' carving - a Scottish totem pole featuring a Scottish terrier, salmon and thistles, crowned with a highland cow . Commenting on his win Iain said "last year the logs were long and narrow so I thought to do a tall carving. I tried to make a Scottish totem pole and put in as many separate carvings as possible into it."

Iain explained that he had been drawing the carving for the last few days but still had to make significant changes to the design. "I had to think on my feet" he said. Iain also took the People's Choice prize where the audience votes for their favourite carving.

2nd Daniel Cordell from England

Second was Daniel Cordell from England with 'Highland Takeaway' a dynamic carving of an eagle swooping down on a fawn. Daniel who has been carving for 14 years said his carving was inspired by his love of Scottish wildlife. For those worried about the welfare of the young deer, Daniel joked that the fawn escapes the eagle's talons.
