This piece of calligraphy combines text taken from Sherif Nicolson's Gaelic Proverbs with Marion's watercolour of Blaven (or Bla Bheinn in gaelic meaning blue hill), one of the most stunning mountains in Scotland. Rising above Loch Slapin to 928m (3,044 feet) Blaven is on the list of every 'Munro bagger'. Everyone of them would feel inspired if they found themselves on the ridge in the conditions described.

Blaven is so famous it has its own website which can be found here .

'There in the bright summer days
stretched on the sward I would be
And gaze to the west on Blaven's crest
towering above the sea

And I'd watch the billowing mist
roll down his mighty side
while from the shore would come evermore
the music of the tide.'
