It’s already the final week of July. Lots of very rainy and overcast days this month but we’ve still been lucky enough to swim most days in the Loch. The Lions Mane jellyfish, the ‘unfriendly ones’ as we call them, or yell out as we come across them, have scuppered any...

Hello and welcome to everyone new who has signed up to my mailing list this month, that is very much appreciated thank you. June is a month of long days stretching almost through the night in the Highlands.  This year it was filled with the usual sun, rain, wind and cu...

Hello! I hope this finds you all well. 

After incredible sunsets, morning frosts, balmy winds and sunshine sparkling on the loch we're now in the middle of 4 or 5 days of very strong winds. Otherwise it’s still incredibly quiet here in the Highlands with Scotland on loc...

We're approaching the end of April already and I really hope everyone has been having the same beautiful weather as we've had here. You can just make out the outer Hebrides across Loch Shieldaig and the Minch on the photo above from yesterday and that only happens a fe...

Hello. Where to begin? Here we are, in a seemingly completely different world from when I posted a few weeks go. I haven't known quite how to approach starting this post as so much has changed for so many of us. I'm writing, in my studio, on a beautifully sunny Spring...

As ever the weather changes dramatically from one day to the next. I've been even more aware of it this year as I'm trying to get out and run (jog) or walk every day and take a photo. My work often becomes much more abstract when I'm trying to capture the feeling of wh...

Dramatic and constantly changing weather. Lots of monochrome mountains with shifting outlines, shrouded in clouds of snow and then brilliant blue skies. I decided to try and draw/paint every day this month. It been a really good thing to do, but has just made me realis...

Making the most of the long Summer days and quickly changing weather, from heavy rain to surprisingly hot sun. Rowed around Shieldaig Island in the skiff yesterday, in preparation for the coastal rowing Regatta and Fete on Saturday. We were lucky enough to see the Sea...
