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.

The 1 ¼ miles of clean white sand of Balnakiel Beach look west across the Kyle of Durness to the Parph Peninsula and Cape Wrath. Behind the beach rises a maze of high dunes that fade into the close-cropped, puffin-tunneled turf and 300 foot high, Moine Thrust cliffs of Faraid Head. On limestone bedrock at the near end of the beach stands the ruins of a 1619 church. Here are the graves of the Gaelic poet, Rob Donn, and the highwayman and murderer, Donald Macmurchow. An earlier church on this same site is thought to date from St. Maelrubha in 720AD. Also buried here are the victims of the Canton, a 3 masted barque wrecked on Faraid Head in 1849. A Viking grave was uncovered recently near the dunes. The big house opposite the church was begun in 1720 for the Lords of Reay, replacing an earlier summer-house for the Bishops of Caithness. To walk along the beach to Faraid Head is a delectable experience of space and time - truly a foretaste of heaven.
