Well,,,, sorry if i'm taking us off topic a bit here . I've looked at these watercolors for years yearning to see it and realizing i probably won't. I went to the book of prints ,his Scotland collection and also the map of the Caingorms you provided a link to. Looks like a number of paintings are in the park.
Dee Valley and Inverclaud,,,,,and lots of others,,,,only makes sense he'd spend a bit of time in the park as THE Cottage is down the Dee.
Anyway really enjoyed the pics Rich.
All those Glens and mountains you listed Bil are very close to where we were. We were in an offshoot of the Dee valley. Balmoral, which is the royal families estate in the area is also in the Dee valley, a few miles away from our camp.
The malt of choice for the weekend was 'Lochnagar', distilled under the same mountain. If you look up the gaelic translation of Lochnagar, you will probably chuckle to yourself every time you see the name. I know I do when I drink it
I reckon there might be some pics from Clova and Muick before too long, they are on the list for a return visit.
+1 on what rich says, it would be nice to put a place to your paintings.
