St-Michael's-Church,-Highga

St Michael’s is at the heart of Highgate’s community. As well as being the parish church it encourages local involvement and hosts activities such as book groups, concerts. Of course a busy time awaits over the next few weeks. It was a joy to be commissioned to paint the church!

A few miles outside Glasgow but set in a landscape of firs, heathers and silver birches the Westerwood Hotel, has a view of its golf course. And there’s the Campsie Fells in the mist.
