North West Highlands Art provides the ultimate in painting courses at Brynaport. Hosted by Mark and Gillian Pattinson, you are made to feel like a welcome guest in their family home, whilst enjoying tuition from a variety of world-renowned artists. Brynaport is situated at the southern end of the coastal road through the tiny west highland village of Achintraid. The views are staggering across Loch Kishorn to the ancient sandstone corries and hills of Applecross, which rise almost sheer to nearly 3,000ft. To the east, the limestone hills rise more gently with hidden lochans and peaty burns. Continuing north from Achintraid one comes to the fishing village of Shieldaig and on to the majestic Torridon hills. The light and colours, with the history and romance of the Scottish Highlands, make a most inspirational and dynamic place to paint.
The accommodation is at Brynaport and cottages in Achintraid, within walking distance of Brynaport.
As each course has a different tutor, there is a wide variety of styles and themes from which to choose. The courses cater for painters at all levels and the numbers are restricted to maximise individual tuition.
