Artist & Printmaker: Aileen Grant

Aileen Grant is in her studio around the back of her house most days, painting, making prints on her printing press, or just thinking. Expect to find framed and unframed pieces as well as cards on display. If it’s a good-weather day, it’s best to phone or email first as she might be out in the hills. After all, it’s the landscape that inspires Aileen and she needs to be out and about.

‘Dochart’, West End, Lochcarron, Strathcarron IV54 8YQ (map)

As you head north out of the village of Lochcarron, take the road to ‘West End’, Strome Castle and Ardaneaskan. I’m about half a mile along that road, opposite the minor road down to the shore at Slumbay (Dail a Chladaich).
