Sherlock instruments to make debut at concert for trees.
As a child, Sir Doyle used to climb a sycamore tree in the garden of his family home in Edinburgh.
The tree had become diseased and was felled two years ago.
Instrument maker Steve Burnett was commissioned to use the wood to produce the 'Sherlock violin'.
Conan Doyle and his creation, literary detective Sherlock Holmes, often played the violin.
Burnett has made four more instruments, another two violins, a viola and a cello, from the famed tree.
They will be played in public for the first time at a Concert for trees in Edinburgh's Usher Hall on Saturday night. (ANI)
