Slim Jim
Jun 2021 • Friends
A life size statue of Rangers & Scotland legend Jim Baxter. Offers a good likeness of ‘Slim Jim’ at the peak of his powers. The location, more or less across the road from where he grew up, is fitting, though somewhat out of the way, being around 30-40 min walk from Cowdenbeath train station, which realistically is it’s only flaw for me.

One of the Great Scottish Footballers

This statue stands in tribute to one of the greatest footballer to play for Rangers and Scotland. He is spoken of in such reverence by Rangers and Scottish fans that I know he was truly a special player. Sadly, I’ve never had the pleasure of seeing the man play, but it’s good to see this tribute to the great man in lieu.

The statue depicts Baxter as he would’ve been at the peak of his powers, with the ball at his left foot and no doubt about to send another opponent the wrong way.

A Fiiting Tribute to a Great Footballer.

A fine monument to Jim Baxter, and it is located more or less directly across the road from the cottage he was brought up in. The end cottage on the east side of the small row opposite.

Could not go to Cowdenbeath without going to see the statue of a local hero. Had to ask for directions but not far from Main Street, pity it was dark so could not take any pictures

Great Memorial to a true sporting legend that was an inspiration to all, having a tribute in his home village is phenomenal.
