A National Trust conservation village, Plockton is a singular breathtaking jewel on the magnificent crown known as the Highlands of Scotland. Located on the western seaboard of the mainland, on the sheltered bay offered by Loch Carron and surrounded by a bowl of hills which gradually become the Black Cuillin at a surprisingly short distance, palm trees grow freely along the picturesque main street in this magical seaside town.
Whilst fishing still takes place in these unspoiled waters, crofting has largely been replaced by a dynamic artist community, drawn here by the unspoiled beauty, the incredible light and a way of life that takes stock of the seasons and their natural rhythms'. Greg Dobson is among those guided here for these and countless other reasons, whose young family flourishes in the fresh air and slowed-down way of living.
Two views of Plockton, one as a panoramic oil on canvas view as seen from the Halt at Duncraig and the second as an oil sketch on paper of the village of Plockton and the hill which is sited behind it.
Your purchase of any of Greg's work will serve to benefit the restoration efforts associated with Burra Cottage.
