The Five Sisters of Kintail is an unbroken ridge of mountains north-west of Glen Shiel and overlooking Loch Duich and the villages of Morvich and Ratagan. The view of the Five Sisters is one of the most iconic images of the Scottish Highlands, the mountains dominating the skyline when seen from the south shore of Loch Duich near the village of Ratagan.
The view is especially impressive during the months of winter or early spring when the summits and westerly facing slopes of the mountains are covered in snow. If that is not enough to satisfy the appetite of the keenest photographer then an equally, if not even more impressive view can be obtained from the Mam Ratagan, the highest point on the road to Glenelg and Arnisdale. From this point an even wider vista opens up to include the neighbouring peak of Beinn Fhada separated from the Five Sisters from the beautiful Gleann Lichd which stretches deep into this great mountain wilderness towards Glen Affric.
The five distinctly pointed summits, Sgurr na Ciste Duibhe, Sgurr na Carnach, the highest Sgurr Fhuaran 1,067 metres (3,501 ft), Sgurr nan Saighead and Sgurr na Moraich are a well-known landmark and a popular hillwalking expedition. Three of the Five Sisters, which are all over 3,000 feet, are classified as full Munros, with the other two being subsidiary Munro tops. The ridge is usually traversed from east to west with views extending as far as Skye, Ben Nevis, Torridon and Knoydart.

All of my prints are made to order.
My prints are painstakingly crafted and printed from only my very best images; the vast majority of which were captured to strictly observed standards using high end professional cameras and lenses, in particular the Fuji GX617 panoramic camera, one of several Canon EOS full frame digital cameras or, more recently, the highly respected market leading Nikon D850 digital camera.
Quality is maintained by respecting the relationship between original image size and final print size; optimising the level of magnification between the two ensures that my prints always contain infinite and crisp subject detail.
I produce all my prints on premium quality inkjet media that enables the extensive colour gamut, best contrast and finest nuances required for impressive pictures.
All my prints are produced on the very latest Epson printers using Ultrachrome HDR pigment inks. These printers take inkjet (giclee) technology to an entirely new level with higher colour accuracy, greater subtlety and smoother gradations. Grass and foliage is much more vivid and natural whilst orange tones in sunrises and sunsets are more dazzling.
All prints have at least a 2" (5cm) white border on all sides of the image.
