Get Ready for 2019

With a Bay Attic Calendar. Choose a fabulous Slimline, A4 or A3 Calendar to jot your important dates and memories down throughout the new year.


Get in tune with nature. Choose the beautifully illustrated Earth and Sky, Keli Clark Slimline Calendar featuring the moon phases and dates and all the cute curios, wildlife and magic that you would expect from Keli’s mystical creativity.


Discover the Isle of Skye with a John Bathgate Slimline Collage 2019 Calendar. John works from his studio in Roskhill, just north of Dunvegan and, creates these intricate works using handmade papers from as far away as, Japan. He incorporates the paper and fibres into his interpretations of the elements that shape the Scottish landscape with dramatic effect.


John has also produced a stunning A3 Calendar for the new year too, with his paintings showing us the island in all seasons. Highlights for us are the Quiraing and Staffin Bay in snow but, then we love snow!


New for us at Bay Attic, is the illustrative design of Scottish Wildlife in the A4 2019 Birds of Scotland Calendar from Stewart Bremner. Check out the Atlantic Puffin (Fratercula arctica) and the Western Capercaillie (Tetrao urogallus) – Gaun Yersel Stewart!

Which, just so, happens to link perfectly to Stewarts ‘Scottish Sayings’ Slimline Calendar. Full of the quirky, colloquial dialect that the Scottish language has to offer. Can you translate the meaning each month? Foos Yer Doos? Had us stumped for a wee while but, then we’re not Aberdonian!


Last but, not least. We’ve two stunning photographic calendars for 2019 from photographer Pauline Kemp of Arran and Peebles. See the Isle of Arran in all its splendour. The front cover image of Machrie is stunning as, the sun reflects on the rocks – what a colour! And more snow – yipee! In the January image of the Peebles Calendar at Glencraig followed in followed by the Spring flowers for April at Neidpath, just lovely.

Our Calendars for 2019 come with or without a posting envelope and are wrapped in a cello bag with card stiffener. Prices start from £6.99.

Spring is here!


March is almost April and I realise that we’ve not posted a single news item to the blog in 2018 yet – blimey! So, perhaps I should wish you all a Happy New Year – a tad late (I Know!).

Where have you been and what have you been doing?

We haven’t been anywhere except the Bay Attic office, honestly. It’s not all sunshine and holidays here (If Only).

David and I have been working away behind the scenes. We’re looking at introducing more framed work to the website and have found some lovely new products too. Then came the snow. Which meant that we could work away in the office but, not get anything shipped out (Arrgh!) Then the back-log of orders that were delayed due to the bad weather and the new ones to be shipped – a crazy week or two and here we are. Spring has sprung at it’s almost Easter. Whoosh!

What’s Popular at Bay Attic?

Since the beginning of the year, Matylda Konecka prints, Peter McDermott art and cards and Janet McCrorie and Peter McDermott mugs are as popular as ever.

Did You Know?

We now stock Peter McDermott and Janet McCrorie Small Mounted Art Prints and Magnets AND some lovely Spring inspired magnets and cards from Keli Clark are a must a t this time of year. They are great little gifts too.

And Finally

We wish you all a Happy Easter, enjoy the holiday weekend.

Janet McCrorie | Artist Spotlight

Janet McCrorie produces the most vibrant, colourful and energetic art. She captures the essence of Scottish Country Dance in her eye-catching work.

janet-photo-31“I live in East Lothian and my working life has revolved around teaching and creating arts and crafts. I have studied painting with the Open College of the Arts and at Leith School of Art and have had two excellent mentors in Jacqueline Watt and Damian Callan.

I paint Scottish dancers using mixed media, plotting out the familiar shapes by scraping and scratching vibrant colours across the painting, meeting the challenge of capturing the look of the tartan and the movement and exuberance of the dance.

I work from photographs, sketches and from life, attending Highland Dancing competitions, Scottish Country Dancing events and Ceilidhs all over Scotland. My aim is to make the viewer smile and to induce a sense of nostalgia while putting a modern twist on the spectacle of these ancient traditional dances.

My paintings have been used to illustrate the Royal Scottish Country Dancing Society’s Annual Review for 2011.”
