The Monument at Glenfinnan

The Monument at Glenfinnan, watercolour, 15 x 25 cm. Available  £140 In 1745, Prince Charles Edward Stuart raised his standard at Glenfinnan, and began his attempt to reclaim the throne for his father, James Stuart. This was the start of the 1745 Jacobite Rising, which ultimately ended in failure at the Battle of Culloden. The Glenfinnan Monument was erected in 1815, in tribute to the clansmen who died for the cause. Location -  

Old Fishing Station at Forse

Old Fishing Station at Forse, watercolour, 16 x 26 cm. Sold. I came across these old buildings, tucked into the cliffs, on a walk along the coast. They are hidden away and forgotten now, but they were probably connected with the herring fishing industry, like many other shoreline ruins.

MeyGen Tidal Energy Project

Engineering Work off Stroma - Watercolour, 16 x 26 cm The sea between the island of Stroma and the Mainland has very strong tidal currents, where the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea meet. This has made it an ideal site for the first commercial tidal power generation project in Scotland, and currently the largest in the World. The turbines are in the form of large propellers, similar to wind turbines. It's good to see a World-leading project based here in Scotland, and the Country is well on the way to having most of its energy from renewable sources. I am concerned about the effect on marine life, particularly the whales and dolphins which are often seen in these waters, but I hope the environmental impact is being monitored and taken into account. The ship in the painting was in the process of servicing one of the turbines. Location -,-3.1498628,12z
