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.

Lochan Hakon is a golden loch - and not necessarily in just a figurative sense. In 1746, a small Jacobite force was captured here by the local Mackays as it fled south from a shipwreck in the Kyle of Tongue to bring aid to Bonnie Prince Charlie, just three weeks before the Battle of Culloden. Legend has it that some of the £70 000 in gold they were carrying was cast into the still, shallow waters. If so, it has remained elusive. The only treasure pulled from the waters since then is the silvery glint of trout caught by happy fishermen. Beyond the lochan, the syenite towers of Ben Loyal recall more ancient gold - that of the magma from which this Queen of Scottish Peaks is formed. But on a clear winter’s day, the whole view is a treasure - whether you are fishing, walking the dog, or simply gazing in awe.
