‘Loch Tay from Beinn Ghlas’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2009, 76 x 23 cm

The walk to the summit of Ben Lawers via Beinn Ghlas is a very popular one and as such, the paths on the hill are large and well used.   That said however, the views from these hills are extensive owing to their height ….Ben Lawers being just a few feet short of the 4000 foot contour.  We often do this walk in the autumn when for one thing it’s a little less busy and also because of the fact that its National Trust land and so not restricted at this time of year by stalking.  On the day this painting was based on, we’d walked to the summit of Ben Lawers in rain and cloud, but as we returned back along the ridge towards Beinn Ghlas, drier, brighter weather moved in and we had some wonderful views down to Loch Tay far below.
