The last of autumn's beautiful leaves are on show to wrap up what has been a magnificent season of colour around Glen Innes Highlands. This coupled with the cool climate upon us makes May a great time to visit to soak up the beauty of the great outdoors. It's the perfect time of year to book a weekend away for exploring during the days and relaxing in the warmth of your cosy accommodation in the evenings.

“I laugh at my own jokes. Sometimes I tell them to other people, more often I make them into art,” James says.
“Having spent years working as a scientist, quantifying the world through an objective lens, I relish in exploring the fantastical through a subjective (mostly silly) lens. This series of works represents me exploring the weird creatures that occupy my mind, and bringing them into some form of reality.”
