Artist's Description

That “big rock” equidistant to Orkney and Shetland……
as viewed from 60N.
Nine square kilometers of heather, mires and magic, courtesy of The National Trust for Scotland!!!
…A very special rock too as a vital pitstop for migrating birds… Birder’s nigtmare & paradise in one pot… Just ask Bill Odie. 60 odd folk make a living there – poets, crofters and mariners… Kind, very fine folk.
Fair Isle is Britain’s most remote island… One needs resilience and courage to endure this way of life.

The afternoon was crisp and the light, dramatic.
Hail showers never damped my will to reach the Head and get closer to shore.
