Print of the Month - June 2017
It's a few months since I chose a print from Scotland so here's one from my 2014 trip to Galloway. Lying on Monreith Bay are the ruins of Kirkmaiden church, one of the oldest churches in Scotland, and the resting place of many of the McCulloch and Maxwell family members, who owned the Monreith estate. Above the church and overlooking the bay is the bronze otter commissioned by Galloway Wildlife Trust and sculptured by Penny Wheatley as a memorial to Gavin Maxwell 1914-1969 who spent his childhood years in the area. Maxwell, the author of the famous book "Ring of Bright Water", which was also made into a successful film was often seen exercising his tame otter, on the beach below Kirkmaiden church, when he returned to the area.
