Stories Of Schiehallion is an exhibition of fine art photography by Cat Burton, inspired by the nature, history and Folklore of Schiehallion.
When we look at the mountain tops that dominate highland Scotland, we cannot help but be in awe. Peaks such as Schiehallion provide a focus, a way-marker and an anchor in the landscape. Many people climb this much-loved mountain each year to take in the views from the summit. My goal for this project is to reveal the fascinating aspects of Schiehallion that often go overlooked. From its history and folklore to the conservation work currently taking place.
While the view from the summit is indeed breathtaking, I hope to inspire people to admire the entirety of the landscape – from the majesty of the mountain top to the life of the glen, with its ruined shielings, woodland and waterfalls. Schiehallion is a mountain of magic and folklore. A place that inspires and beckons us.
This isn’t just a munro to be bagged.
This is a place of fascinating stories and wondrous tales.
There is more to a mountain than the view from its summit.
