On Tuesday we went back to Ghlas Beinn, the small hill on the edge of Rannoch Moor that we’ve walked twice before. As I’ve probably said before, it’s not a huge walk, just a few kilometres each way and probably around 300 m of up and down ..but its location makes it very special. Sat on the edge of the moor it offers big views all around and on Tuesday they were exceptional ….better even than on our previous visits. I’m not going to ramble on, suffice to say that we spent five hours wandering along this gentle undulating grassy ridge to the small cairn marking the top of Ghlas Beinn …and back, continually stopping to take photos or just to look and marvel at this very special landscape. Below are several of the photos I took …hopefully they’ll give you an idea of what it was like.
It has been a good last couple of months despite the general economic gloom and I’ve sold a number of paintings which has certainly put a smile on my face …and no doubt that of my bank manager too! Anyway, do remember, should you still be looking for that special gift for someone who loves Scotland, there’s still time to get an original Keith Salmon painting! You will find a small selection of my work at the following galleries:
The Strathearn Gallery, Crieff
The Framework Gallery, Troon
The Gallery on the Corner, Edinburgh
Scottish Showcase Gallery, Kirkcudbright
I also have a good selection of work for sale at my studio …just give me a quick ring (07742 437425) to check that I’ll be there ….we’re hoping to go walking again one day before Christmas! Contact details for the galleries above can be found on their websites …see the links at the side of this page.
Right then, that’s it for this week. My best wishes to everyone over the festive period. Have a great time.
