Prints are mounted using Daler Mountboard with a protective backing of greyboard. The 3 colours shown above are fairly neutral to match most decors, but I do have other colours available. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Sandwiched between Torridonian sandstone and Lewisian gneiss, the rocky north bay at Clachtoll is a magnet for geologists. The sandy southern beach attracts seekers of serenity. This beautiful curve of white sand with its scattered crofting community is probably named after the dramatic split rock on the southern headland. In Gaelic, “clach” is “rock” and “toll” means “hole”. Evidence of earlier, more strenuous, occupation may be seen in the remains of an iron-age broch to the north, and the salmon bothy, ice-house, and net-drying poles between the 2 halves of the bay. This salmon fishery operated until 1994 - the last on the west coast. There is also a memorial to beloved preacher Norman Macleod, born in Clachtoll in 1780, who led his flock of over 800 souls to Canada, Australia, and finally New Zealand, during the Clearances. Today, Clachtoll is a haven of peace - a place in which to relax, fall in love - even propose marriage. Its turbulent past is mostly hidden beneath a veil of scenic tranquility.
