Painting vacation in Scottish Highlands

The far Northwest is a land few visit but none forget. Prehistoric, weathered peaks jut into the clouds above pristine beaches and rocky shorelines where gulls wheel, seals laze and otters gambol. Home to small communities of hardy crofters and fishermen, the landscape is vast and sparsely inhabited; one can be in the hills all day without meeting a single soul although if you are lucky you'll sea red deer and perhaps an eagle. For painters the area is Heaven and it's a real challenge to do it justice in a short stay. In this itinerary I have tried to cover the most iconic places around the area of Assynt. To reach the most fabulous, hidden corners a little walking is required; thus this ...Read more >

Complete novices (a ...Read more >
