Artist's Description

The hollow below the castle known as Lag na Sassenach (Hollow of the English) and it was allegedly during the 1500s that a garrison of English soldiers laying siege to the castle were surrounded and massacred.

Fair Head cliffs can just be viewed along the horizon in this image.

Rocks pebbles and seaweed where being cast up in to the air on the other side of this kinbane head. The clouds where moving so fast that lighting conditions where changing every second, it was breathtaking to behold…
