Red Castle in Lunan Bay , near Montrose. Carolyn Lamb 27th & 28th August 2018. Oil. This bay between Montrose and Arbroath has been on my 'to paint' list for years. You spot the 15th century Red Castle on its hump perched beside the fantastic sand dunes and long sandy beach as you whiz past on the train. That gives the best view of the castle as closer up the ruins look odd, - more like an animal sitting down than a castle. Although that was the view I thought I would paint, it is still on my 'to do' list . This time I went a bit closer onto the dunes.
