Plockton captured Bruce Thomson’s attention after the Second World War and became the source of some of his best known work. Sailing boats in rapidly changing weather conditions provided the artist with a favourite subject. Here, the artist has ventured over to the little island on the sea front at low tide to look back at the village promontory, providing a safe anchorage for yachts.
