Artist's Description

About halfway between the English border, and the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh lies the Scottish village of Sanquhar. For most its a stopping point on the long journey North (with an excellent, if somewhat hidden cafe for a fry-up and mug of builders tea), or where the road branches to reach the historic mining villages of Wanlockhead and Leadhills perpetually hidden in the mist. I was visiting the latter, and had a few minutes to spare and so investigated what was marked on the map as Sanquhar castle. It turns out its quite a picturesque ruin left wild in a field grazed by inquisitive sheep. Built in the 13th century it has a long history and a stunning setting.

This painting comes from the photo I took more than a decade back now. Painted oil on board 20×8 inches
