Artist's Description

I was working up in the north of Scotland, and found this old ruin.

Varrich Castle is located in the far north of the Scottish highlands near to the village of Tongue, Highland, Scotland. The castle, known as Caisteal Bharraich in the Gaelic language, stands on the foot slopes of the mountain Ben Loyal in Sutherland, on a local high point of rock, overlooking both the Kyle of Tongue and the village of Tongue. The castles’ precise origins and age are unknown.

The ancient seat of the chief of the Clan MacKay was at Varrich Castle, thought to be over one thousand years old, there are believed to be caves under the castle which were once inhabited by the Mackays. It is believed to be possible that the MacKays built their castle on the site in the 14th century, on top of an existing old Norse fort. extract from Wikipedia
