If you’re on vacation in Fife, and lucky enough to be staying in one of the three five-star properties on the superb fifty five acre Hawkswood Country Estate, no doubt you’ll have seen the wide range of facilities they offer. In addition, you can choose from a wide range of local activities, such as attending one of my art tuition opportunities – perfect for non-golfing partners, for example. Take away a wonderful painting, created in Fife – by you! Just speak with your concierge, who will be able to arrange this with you directly.

GARTMORE HOUSE retreat in November – well done to all!

A great week with students on the watercolour painting retreat at Gartmore House, Stirling last week. See photos in the Tuition Photo Gallery. Well done everyone – working from early morning until late at night. That’s dedication! Great to see everyone out sketching onboard the Lady of the Lake, Loch Katrine, in a weather window of opportunity. Once again, a big thank you to all the staff for top-level front of house hosting, support and amazing culinary delights from the kitchen!
