Tag: Creative Trail in Pitlochry

The Queen’s View is one of the most photographed places in Perthshire. The view takes in Loch Tummel and is said to have been named after Queen Victoria, following her visit to the area in 1866. The Queen’s View Visitor Centre lies at the eastern edge of Loch Tummel and is surrounded by part of the Tay Forest Park. As well as a stunning viewpoint overlooking the loch and beyond to the iconic Schiehallion, the area offers a range of woodland walks suitable for all abilities and always open. Opening times: Please check website as the centre is being refurbished.

Having graduated in 1971 from Glasgow School of Art, my artwork has been exhibited in galleries, art fairs and major events throughout the UK and abroad. My equestrian paintings featuring the line and movement of the horse are particularly popular, while clients find my cat and other animal studies very appealing. At Art School I was taught to turn my brush to a wide range of subjects and my landscapes, inspired by my love for the beauty, majesty and colour of the Scottish Highlands and Islands along with my contemporary works from inspiration are much appreciated. You will find a wide selection of original paintings and prints on display in my own studio/gallery.
