St Mary's Chapel

St Mary's Chapel, Crosskirk - watercolour, 13 x 18 cm   This little chapel was built in the 12th Century, and is one of the oldest in the area. It seems a bit isolated now and I don't know why it was built here. Previous burial mounds  have been found, as well as a Pictish symbol stone, so maybe the site had some special significance.  

Foggy Winter Afternoon

Foggy Winter Afternoon - watercolour, 17 x 25 cm  The sun was going down on a beautiful winter's day, and as the temperature dropped, all the hollows in the landscape began to fill with fog. The effect was quite eerie; an unease I suppose at what might be lurking in those foggy places!    

Old Granary at Littleferry

Old Granary at Littleferry - watercolour, 17 x 25 cm   I came across this old building at Littleferry, near Golspie. I was attracted by the interesting stepped gables on the roof, and the lovely location on the edge of the loch. The Old Granary is now a restaurant and must be a nice place for a meal in the summer.
