Clachtoll Peat Road Bridge
20” x 16” oil on Arches oil paper. I did this about nine years ago as a pen & wash sketch, I’ve loosely based it on that sketch. The peat road (a dirt track) runs from the township of Clachtoll through the hills to the peat beds, it is criss crossed by many burns which can be spectacular after heavy rain. There are many rock carvings along the track done by the community of the townships that used the peat road.......some dating back to the early 1700’s.
