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.

(NC500) - Park in the car park at the eastern end of Loch Assynt and walk a short distance towards the water to see this view.
The ruins of the diminutive Ardvreck Castle stand on a narrow promontory at the east end of Loch Assynt. The castle was built in the late 1400s and has a violent history, with murders, executions, sieges, and betrayals, which quite belie its size and its dramatic setting on one of the most beautiful lochs in the north. The castle’s human occupation finally came to an end in 1795 when it was struck and largely destroyed by lightening. Soaring behind are the 3400ft (1040m) sandstone tops and ridges of Quinag (pronounced “coon-yak”), a Y-shaped mountain that offers a sensational day out to those with strong legs and a head for heights. Gazing down from the summit, Ardvreck shrinks into insignificance, as does the whole of human history when viewed from the perspective of geological time. It does us good to be put in our place occasionally.
