“On the remote west side of Shetland you can find spectacular scenery, peace and the ideal refuge for the escapist. The guest house welcomes you with peat fires, a cosy library and all the marvellous food you could want after a day of exploring….” This is Burrastow House , near Walls.
The house is right next to the sea. Here’s a view across the bay.
Around the back is a vegetable garden and polytunnel with herbs in. Here’s the view from the back. See all the chimneys!
And here’s another view from the front garden.
Here is work in progress on these pictures.
All pictures drawn and coloured on location, using a paper block by Saunders Waterford “St Cuthberts Mill” 300gsm Hot Press and Daniel Smith Watercolours over De Atramentis waterproof ink.
Thank you to my hosts, Pierre and Han.
