Garlieston



Alex and I spent a wonderful couple of weeks in Garlieston this year. This little village is in Dumfries and Gallow on the west Coast of Scotland. It is just like the set out of "Local Hero", the lovely film by David Putnam.
Unfortunately we weren't treated to a display of the Aurora Borealis . A small shop and pub along with a little harbour are all that accompany the street lining the sea shore. Ah peace, plenty to paint lots of good walks and because of Scotland's right to roam Law Jac was allowed on any beach.
The watercolour above shows the only trawler based in the harbour and that was in the process of having a good refit.
Today I am working on a large oil painting.
