I've been lucky enough to spend a big chunk of my life travelling in Scotland. And writing about it for this website. But I like painting too. And quite often it's the seas and skies of my favourite area: the Moray Firth.
These local Scottish scenes are inkjet replicas produced on archival paper in acid-free mounts. (I paint mostly in gouache, with some watercolour and other materials, including pen, crayon, scalpel, pin, eraser and bad language.)
Print size is 11.7 x 16.5 inches / 297 x 420mm, (standard A3), in mount 16 x 20 inches / 406 x 508mm. We can also supply these prints in other sizes on request.
Wrapped in a protective sleeve, packed and shipped flat in sturdy packaging, your purchase will arrive signed and ready to hang - in a simple white frame.

At the western coastal edge of Aberdeenshire, the former fishing community of Sandend is almost hidden from the main road, the oldest part of the village tucked away below small grassy cliffs. Nevertheless it is well known for its fine beach, attracting surfers all year round.
It’s empty, it’s sombre and the sun comes and goes - it’s Rannoch Moor when the shades of autumn lie over it. The peaks of the Blackmount here still make a good day out for walkers - before the winter snows arrive!
These quartzite stacks are called the Three Kings - they are prominent on the sandy beach at Cullen, one of the Moray Firth’s most attractive coastal villages. Two of the stacks are lapped by the tides. Please note - this print will reach you in a simple white frame and ready to hang.
The famous Bass Rock is a landmark in the Firth of Forth near North Berwick in East Lothian. This ancient ‘volcanic plug’ is 351ft (107m) high and is noted for its large gannet colony. There are excellent views from North Berwick beach. Merlin meanwhile are sporadic visitors along the East Lothian coast. This one was chasing a rock pipit and inspired this painting. (The rock pipit got away.) Please note - this print will reach you in a simple white frame and ready to hang.
The Three Kings of Cullen are prominent features of the coastal scenery to the west of Cullen. Two of them are lapped by the tides on Cullen beach. Like the Bow Fiddle Rock to the west, these rock formations are of tough quartzite rock - as is the beach sand. Please note - this print will reach you in a simple white frame and ready to hang.
The old seatown of Cullen dates from the 1820s, just after the harbour pier by Thomas Telford was built. The series of viaducts to the south were built by the Great North of Scotland Railway in 1886. Today the old railway trackbed is a walkway between Cullen and Portknockie. Please note - this print will reach you in a simple white frame and ready to hang.
Always opportunistic, herring gulls are always ready to help out when it comes to tidying cafe tables outside. The original incident that led to this painting was at the village of St Abbs, but it could be anywhere on Scotland’s coast!
While Sanna at the western end of the Ardnamurchan peninsula is the best known stretch of unspoilt sands, it’s worth exploring the other ‘hidden gems’ in the area. This view looks north towards the Small Isles.
Regularly, every winter, flocks of long-tailed ducks arrive on Scottish coasts to swim and dive offshore, oblivious to the weather. Often just glimpsed as they appear on the the wave-tops, they are best viewed through binoculars or telescope.
The locally famous landmark of the Bow Fiddle Rock is a kind of icon of the Moray coast. On the eastern edge of Portknockie - and visible from Cullen - the Bow Fiddle is formed of quartzite rock. The sea has eroded it to form a sloping arch offshore. It can be safely viewed from the coastal cliffs and also at sea-level. Please note - this print will reach you in a simple white frame and ready to hang.
There’s always some activity near the estuary of the River Spey in winter or summer. Sometimes it’s fishing seals, sometimes just ducks flying past. The northern hills are still white across the firth - but spring isn’t far away.
Spey Bay can get very busy in the summer - but in the quiet season, with the wind in the north-west, the estuary of the River Spey offers a different experience. The afternoon sun drops away behind Kingston-upon-Spey and you’ll be glad of the shelter of the trees on this section of the Speyside Way that meets the Moray Firth.
Spey Bay is a popular place for dolphin watching, spotting ospreys in summer and generally enjoying the habitat of shingle bank and scrub. This is a summer picture at high tide on the estuary. The blue of sea and sky and the yellow of the blooming gorse are typical of the Moray coast. Please note - this print will reach you in a simple white frame and ready to hang.
This unspoilt bay lies between Portessie and Findochty on the Moray Firth coast. Sometimes overlooked by visitors, this stretch of shore is an easy walk either from the carpark at Strathlene to the west or from the harbour at Findochty. It forms part of the Moray Coast Trail. Please note - this print will reach you in a simple white frame and ready to hang.
Beinn a’ Chreachain - 3546ft / 1051m - together with its westerly neighbour Beinn Achaladair make a big day out. In good visibility Ben Nevis is easy to pick out on the northern horizon, beyond Rannoch Moor. On the tops here, look for dotterel stopping off on migration in spring. There are two in this picture and, like most dotterel, they are hard to spot. Please note - this print will reach you in a simple white frame and ready to hang.
The eastern part of the Moray Firth is (surprisingly) wild and unspoilt - and visited less frequently than better-known places to the west. (Let’s hope it stays that way!) Troup Head is noted for its gannet colony, which has expanded in recent years. Please note - this print will reach you in a simple white frame and ready to hang.
Scarce and sometimes even un-noticed, this little wader (that swims!) passes along our coasts sometimes in autumn. The one that reminded me to paint this picture was seen close to the shore by Portknockie in Morayshire in 2018. It’s a grey phalarope.
NB ‘Portrait’ or upright format - same size as others here but height greater than width.
