Slioch and Loch Maree

Slioch and Loch Maree
Watercolour
9 x 13.5 inches (23 x 34 cm)


I have just been watching a television programme about the wonderful wildlife of Loch Maree - White-tailed Sea Eagles, Black-throated Divers etc. - so I thought I would show a painting of the loch.

Loch Maree lies between the Torridon range of mountains and the Fisherfield Forest, also known as The Great Wilderness. The steep slopes of Slioch (The Spear) dominate the north side, to the south is the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve and the village of Kinlochewe is at its eastern end.. The area around the loch has some of the last remaining scots pines of the Great Caledonian Forest.
