Our range of original artwork, prints and greetings cards of Aberdeenshire can make ideal Christmas gifts for those looking to give friends and family a unique piece of Scottish art. A special gift capturing the beauty of the local landscape, they are often sent by our customers across the world as a reminder of home, or a memorable visit to Scotland.
Living and painting most of his life with an art gallery in Glen Muick, Howard Butterworth’s legacy as Ballater’s best loved artist is well known and illustrated by the enduring memorial ‘I am the light of the world/Is mise solas an t-saoghil’ which can be found at Ballater Church dedicated to and commissioned by Mike Sheridan, friend and Master Butcher, Royal Warrant Holder and benefactor to the community of Ballater.
Glen Muick Church Green will be hosting the Ballater Winter Festival which takes place on Saturday 25th November. Visitors can enjoy a variety of events along with the community raffle that we are supporting with a donated raffle prize of "Ballater Bridge in snow"
We believe in supporting local business. Our prints and greetings cards are all made in Scotland. We have over 60 cards designs to choose from, all are left blank for your personal message making them ideal for all occasions. They come packaged in an eco friendly bag with a high quality white envelope.
