Harrison and Sir Peter Scott. We are pleased to say that there should be something here for all avian enthusiasts, ranging from a stunning trio of Colin Burns to a selection of the small, delicate watercolours of Roland Green.

Along with the oils, watercolours and prints, we will also be displaying and selling a large selection of avian taxidermy – including African Parrots, Birds of Paradise and a striking Capercaillie. In a region famed for this particular practice, we are pleased to announce that we already have pieces by the famous Victorian taxidermists T. E. Gunn, Walter Lowne and H. N. Pashley.
