We would like to invite you to come and see us at WildGrass Studio near Killin in our beautiful corner of Perthshire.

Gill has been working on her 'Fairy Ballet' body of work - of which one large limited edition Framed Print is now available to view at Delta Studios and the second is at WildGrass Studios . . . more of the work will be available during Perthshire Open Studios in September. Gill has also been working on her 'Dances with Flowers' and has framed and unframed limited edition Giclee Prints of the work for sale along with her hand glinted framed and unframed open edition 'Raindrops on Grasses'

Our prices range from £2.50 for miniature Giclee print cards to £850

Sharing the location are our neighbours Heather and Bernard who will be exhibiting their rather wonderful paintings and drawings in their Lochan Studio - details of their work

Finally remember that we offer a professional Printing and Framing service to artists and individuals so please come and talk to us to see how we can help you with presenting your own work.

Why Stay at Wester Lix

So many reasons, but here is just one reason incorporating many . . . what am I waffling on about - the Wildlife - that is what!!!!!!!

We have a rich abundance of Wildlife of Wester Lix and the following pictures are some of them . . .

Please note that whilst I am a photographer alot of these pictures are just grabbed shot and low resolution jpegs so the quality is not up to my usual standard . . .

A Buzzard in the Snow

One of several Male Blackbirds

A Grey Heron

Duck and Ducklings on our Lochan

Young Hedgehog

Grey Heron in Flight

Sheep and Deer

Cute Bunnies

Mum and Ducklings on a daily pilgrimage to my bird table.

A Newt

Wood Pigeon

Red Stag actually taken on Rannoch Moor - but we have a herd visit us regurarly

One of our several Red Squirrels

My little friend - he sits on this post every morning

This Red Squirrel actually jumped on the Jay which hurriedly flew off

Stalking Heron after Frogs

One of our Toads

A very young Jay

And last but not least some pictures taken by one of our guests of our Otters . . . we are thinking of maybe building a hide to get closer  . . .

This top picture is actually two Otters sliding down together on a slide they had made!

We have many small birds as you will see as well as Tawny Owls and occasionally the sighting of a Golden Eagle.

We also have foxes and stoats, but I have yet to get a picture and there has been a Pine Martin seen in the vicinity . . . so your challenge if you come and stay is to get pictures of the Wildlife that we so far haven't managed to!
