'Findochty Shoreline', watercolour, 52 x 34 cm.
Findochty is one of the prettiest ports on the Moray coast, between Portknockie and Buckie. The name is derived from the old Scots 'Finichty', and is more commonly pronounced 'Finechty' by the local people. Formerly a fishing port, Findochty suffered by comparison with the better harbour at Buckie, and its use as a fishing port had declined significantly by about 1900, although some commercial activity, as here, still goes on. Most of the craft in the harbour are now leisure craft, and the village, which clusters around the water, is truly beautiful. Here we're beyond the harbour walls on the beach close to Jubilee Terrace and the caravan park, looking across the harbour entrance in a fresh onshore breeze towards the Church of Scotland kirk on the hill.
The original painting is sold.
