Perched on a gigantic rocky outcrop overlooking the North Sea, Dunnottar Castle is a dramatic and evocative ruined cliff top fortress once the home of the Earls Marischal, once one of the most powerful families in Scotland. 
Steeped in history, this romantic and haunting ruin, located just outside Stonehaven in Aberdeenshire, is an artist dream.  
In my illustration I wanted to emphasise the beautiful wild Scottish flowers that frame this amazing, much loved view of the castle.  Shop here

Overlooking my home town of Banchory is Scolty Hill. Flanked with quiet woodlands, there are numerous trails that wander through tall larch and pine trees forests. You might spot a red squirrel or even a pine martin if you are really lucky. 
The hill, topped by the distinctive Scolty Tower, affords panoramic views over Royal Deeside and the Grampian mountains.

If you have every visited Edinburgh you will be familiar with Arthurs seat as it is Edinburgh’s highest hill, visible for miles around. The rocky slopes and cliffs of Arthur’s Seat and Salisbury Crags are part of Holyrood Park and provide a spectacular natural backdrop to the city. 
Although the origin of the name is uncertain, some claim that there is a connection between Edinburgh and King Arthur. Arthur’s Seat may have been the location of legendary Camelot.

Loch Morlich is a freshwater loch with a beautiful sandy beach (Famous for being the highest beach in Britain!) in Scotland near Aviemore. It is surrounded by the Glenmore forests with the stunning backdrop of the often snow-clad peaks of the northern Cairngorms.  I have hand drawn this vector illustration using a graphics tablet and water colour effect brushes to add texture.
