The Isle of Tiree is the most westerly island of the Inner Hebrides. It is relatively small - about twelve miles long and three miles wide - and very flat. Although the island is famous for its lush green landscape it has been described variously as ‘a raised beach’ and ‘the land below the waves’.
The island has a mild climate with some of the highest levels of sunshine recorded anywhere in the British Isles. It benefits from the moderating influence of the Gulf Stream, ensuring that frost is rare and evenings in mid-summer are warm and balmy. And it’s no surprise that the almost impossibly white sandy beaches and cyan emerald hues of the surrounding sea make this a popular destination for surfers and water sports enthusiasts.
James came across this delightful croft with its thatched roof and bright blue doors overlooking the beach on the North West corner of the island.
This signed print is one of a limited edition. It’s recorded on Hahnemühle stock via a large format mimeograph and generally referred to as Giclée prints of premium quality. The paper is white 100% a-cellulose with a distinct textured surface and the premium matt inkjet coating more than meets the highest industry standards vis-à-vis density, colour gamut, colour graduation and image sharpness, while preserving the extraordinary touch and feel of genuine art paper. The editions depicted on Iconic Reserve are not representative of scale and solely for the purpose of suggestive display.
