This stunning photographic print shows a view across Loch Sunart with incredible deep colours in the sky reflected across the Loch as the sun rises across the land. Sunart is a rural district and parish in south west Lochaber, in the Highlands of Scotland, on the north shore of Loch Sunart. The main village is Strontian, at the head of the loch.
Nearly all of the population live in a narrow ribbon of small settlements along the northern shore of Loch Sunart. The inland, including the shore of Loch Shiel, consists of rough, hilly country, mainly moorland, peat bog and woodland, dominated by the main hill, Beinn Resipol, which is a Corbett (a name given to all the distinct mountains in Scotland which are between 2,500 and 3,000 feet, and which have a re-ascent of 500 feet on all sides).
The area is renowned for the richness of its wildlife, and it contains some of the best surviving remnants of the ancient temperate Atlantic oak forest. Loch Sunart itself also has a rich flora and fauna. The area is reputed to have the widest variety of fungi, lichen and bryophyte species in the whole of Europe, due to the mild, wet oceanic climate.
This print is available in the square format as either a canvas print, acrylic mount or poster ready to frame. Please enquire if you require a specific print size to suit your walls.
