Artist's Description

Skellybogs is the intriguing name of the farm in the foreground. Mormond Hill is a landmark in the Buchan area of north-east Aberdeenshire, easily recognized by the array of aerials on top, originally an American listening post during the Cold War but now mainly telephone masts.
On top of the middle summit (actually Waughton Hill, but often referred to as part of Mormond Hill) is the hunting lodge built by Captain Fraser in 1779 with a fireplace big enough to roast a whole deer. Below and to the left of that is the White Horse, commissioned by Captain Fraser as a tribute to Sergeant James Hutcheon of New Deer, who gave his horse to the captain and was killed before he could capture another loose mount for himself when fighting against the French in Holland in 1794.
