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.

Thurso (population about 9000) is the most northerly town on the British mainland. It was once a thriving Norse port and fishing centre, but the main harbour and ferry to Orkney is now located at nearby Scrabster. Much of Thurso’s New Town was designed in gridiron fashion by Sir John Sinclair in the late 1700s, and is said to be the inspiration for New York’s squared layout. The old fishing town (the Fisherbiggins), however, is a tangle of narrow streets beside the harbour, and it is there that the ruins of St. Peter’s Kirk (built around 1125) may be found. The apostle Peter was, of course, a fisherman, and it is interesting that the ruins of this ancient church stand guard over a colourful assortment of ageing boats.
(NC500) - Follow the side road north along the west side of the river from the bridge in Thurso towards the harbour. After a few hundred yards you will see this view of the old church.
