Backed by dunes and framed by rocky promontories, this picture was definately inspired by the real thing.
Mellon Udrigle is one of the most stunning pieces of coastline in Wester Ross.
The waters are crystal clear and the beach made of bleached white sand. The beach is spectacular in itself without its stunning location. However what makes this vista and in turn the painting really special is a distant mountain vista possibly unequalled from any low level viewpoint in Scotland.
To the north east the views include the distinctive profile of Suilven, near Lochinver, taking in the mountains of Coigach, including a glimpse of the top of Stac Pollaidh. To the south east the views conclude with a glimpse of An Teallach before becoming lost in the more local humps and bumps of the peninsula you are standing on between Gruinard Bay and Loch Ewe.
