The River Clyde, The Wonderful Clyde by Rob Hain

The River Clyde The Wonderful Clyde

I am rather partial to the West Coast of Scotland, and this print by Rob Hain.
Can you see the squinty bridge, Science Centre, Glenlee and the Museum of Transport ?

Himalayas, St. Andrews.

A grand day out was had putting at the Himalayas in St. Andrews. Located to the right of the second tee on the Old Course, a round can easily last at least 45 minutes depending on your fellow team mates and how busy the course is on the day. Run by the Ladies Putting Club, the course is open to the public daily from April to September, although, there are times when the course is for members only.

Himalayas, St. Andrews

Pleasantly blustery, I did not need to wrap up as if on a trip to Antarctica this time. We enjoyed blue skies and lovely sunshine. We tee off at the first, in locked competition consisting of 9 players across two teams.  My game – I didn’t keep score – it was probably just as well. In the end none of us kept score, but our team did manage a hole in one !

As usual, the welcoming and most placid guard dog I have ever seen, watches as you pay and play, and if you need a comfort break, golfing gear or sustenance, the Ladies Putting Club is right next to the Himalayas and a welcome stop to defrost if the weather is not in your favour. Even a visit to the toilets are a must with cleanliness, soap and hand-wash that invigorate the senses !

Take a piece of St. Andrews home and share a memory from St. Andrews, with a vibrant and bright, The Pier Walk, St. Andrews by artist Rob Hain, and St. Andrews Harbour by Daniel Campbell. These open edition art prints are available in two sizes. Re-tell your St. Andrews visit to friends and family in greeting card Blue Boat by Sheila Fowler, or have a friend round for an afternoon cuppa and a chat to say St. Andrews is well worth a visit, whether you go to play golf, put the Himalayas, stay to study, wine and dine or plan to shop, you will have a grand day out no-matter what.

Edinburgh. What would you say if someone asked you about the Capital of Scotland ? Historical, Political, Educational, Cultural, Inspirational. Old Town. New Town, Sir Walter Scott, Ian Rankin, The Bay City Rollers, the Festival Fringe, the Book Festival, Military Tattoo, Holyrood Palace, Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh Zoo, Tourist Destination, Trams, Nespresso, Harvey Nichols, Hogmanay, Princes Street for shopping, Canongate Church for prayer, the Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, Kilts and Bagpipes, Edinburgh People, the Scottish Parliament, Scottish Independence or Grand Theft Auto ?

The answer to the question is just as diverse as the City itself, and perhaps not everyone would expect to see the words Scottish Independence and Grand Theft Auto in the same sentence !

Art is just as rich in content. There is much variety in Edinburgh Art. The City and it’s streets, monuments, historical buildings and landscape are inspiration for artists, as can be seen in work by Daniel Campbell, Peter Brown, Colin Ruffell, Jolomo and more. Be inspired by our artists view of Edinburgh. Choose a Giclee Art Print or Poster Print from our choice online, as a gift or to compliment your decor.

Highland | A’ Ghàidhealtachd

My post today shares art which includes the word “Highland“, in the title of the artists piece of work. I am almost sure this is a consequence influenced by my successful goal of climbing my first Munro, Buachaille Etive Mòr.

The Scottish Highlands are collectively six regions – Skye and Lochalsh, Fort William and Lochaber, Inverness, Loch Ness and Tain, Aviemore and The Cairngorms, Moray and the Northern Highlands.

This picturesque area of Scotland has wonderous mountains, diverse wildlife, enchanting lochs, sandy beaches, historic castles, monuments, and battlefields. The Highlands are world renound and steeped in amazing historic events, famous Scots and folklore. From the Loch Ness Monster to the Massacre at Glencoe, to cattle rustling Scotsmen, Whiskey distilling, tartan making and kilt wearing. These regions are famous for Scottish history, the Gaelic language, outdoor pursuits, local produce, traditional crafts, art and much more.
