Gloria Brenton (left)
who is now the new owner of the
Isle of Skye Painting
by Jean Watson
Linda Finnie (Games President & Events Coordinator) presented it to Gloria at her home last year.
Dunvegan Castle has been the home of the McLeod Family for over 800 years.
It contains some pretty amazing artifacts:
A lock of Bonnie Prince Charlie's hair
The Fairy Flag & Sir Rory Mor's Drinking Horn
to name a few.
It has also been the setting for various movies including
Maid of Honor, 47 Ronin, MacBeth & Highlander.
This painting will be a treasured piece in Gloria's home I'm sure.
