The Illicit Still by kernuak

Currently unavailable for purchase

Named after a story, this log cabin sits next to a small loch called Loch Cuil na Caillich on the Aigas Estate, in the Scottish Highlands, not far from Inverness. After a week of threatened snow, it finally settled overnight, allowing this photograph. With the addition of the snow, the log cabin gives a sense of it belonging there. Also, it would feel homely for many people.
50% of the proceeds will go to the Aigas Trust, a charity providing environmental education to children and to those wanting a career in conservation.
Featured in the Canon DSLR, Seasonal ’Scapes and Photography 101 groups.

    gorgeous image, would like to be settled in there with a nice fire!

  • Thanks for your comment. There’s no electric there, so it would have to be a log fire.
