Oliver Bonas is Coming to Perth

Oliver Bonas is Coming to Perth

Oliver Bonas is opening its first store in Perth  – in December 2017

Established in 1993 by founder and CEO Oliver Tress, Oliver Bonas has evolved from Olly bringing back interesting pieces from his travels abroad, into an ever-expanding team of creative individuals. Today, Olly is still at OB and his love of good design and innovation is one of the company’s guiding principles. Their buyers and designers travel around the world to inspire their latest creations, working with skilled artisans who are experts in their fields to craft new ideas. Their collections – from fashion and jewellery to homeware and furniture – are curated by Olly with the help of the OB team, focusing on high-quality materials with handcrafted touches.

At OB, almost all their products are designed in-house, from concept sketch to finished article. From the tiny details, like their hand-sketched cosmetics packaging, to statement sculptural lighting, their passion for design always plays a role.

The Perth will be their 79th store in the UK and will be found at 168 – 172 High Street, in the centre of the city. The Perth store will sell an edited collection across women’s fashion, accessories, homeware and jewellery.

They are actively recruiting in the Perth area for our new store – those keen to join Team OB can send a CV to joinus@oliverbonas.com.

The Monarch of the Glen at Perth Museum and Art Gallery

The Monarch of the Glen at Perth Museum and Art Gallery

The Monarch of the Glen painting will be at Perth Museum and Art Gallery from the 25th November 2017 – 13th January 2018

The Monarch of the Glen is one of the most famous British pictures of the nineteenth century: for many people it encapsulates the grandeur and majesty of Scotland’s highlands and wildlife. Painted by Edwin Landseer, it depicts a monumental and precisely defined ‘royal’ or twelve point stag – a reference to the number of points on its antlers. Many of Landseer’s paintings show interactions between humans and animals, but in this, his most well-known work, a single emblematic creature is viewed in a moment of exhilaration. The Monarch of the Glen became widely admired in nineteenth century, when it was reproduced in prints, and achieved even greater renown in the twentieth century when it was employed as a marketing image for various products, so endowing it with global recognition.

The iconic painting was acquired for the nation in March 2017 after a high-profile fundraising campaign. Between October 2017 and May 2018 it will go on show in Inverness, Perth, Paisley and Kirkcudbright. Organised by the National Galleries of Scotland, with support from Scottish Government, the Heritage Lottery Fund, and the Art Fund.

IMAGE CREDIT: Sir Edwin Landseer, The Monarch of the Glen (about 1851). Purchased by the National Galleries of Scotland as a part gift from Diageo Scotland Ltd, with contributions from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Dunard Fund, the Art Fund, the William Jacob Bequest, the Tam O’ Shanter Trust, the Turtleton Trust, and the K. T. Wiedemann Foundation, Inc. and through public appeal, 2017.

Perth on Canvas –  RSGS Christmas Fair

Perth on Canvas – RSGS Christmas Fair

As a small charity with limited financial resources, the Perth-based Royal Scottish Geographical Society (RSGS) relies heavily on the creativity and motivation of its staff and volunteers, and goodwill from a whole host of contributors from around the world. But, with this support, it really does achieve a lot…

One of the most impressive examples of this was a recent commission by the Society for a new painting of Perth. Delivered by local artist Rob Hain, the result is a vividly colourful and richly interesting new depiction of ‘The Fair City’, complete with humorous references to well-known people, places and events around Perth.

A brief viewing of the artwork, for instance, reveals both the exhilarating Tay Descent and the zany Kilt Run, landmarks such as the Perth Concert Hall and The Fair Maid’s House, and local characters such as the Perth Scooter Gran. For many, however, it’s the small details that have really captured the imagination, with each new viewing uncovering a new character, joke or quirk such as the frolicking giraffe featured in the bottom corner of the painting!

Since it was unveiled during the summer, over 50 prints of Rob’s painting have been sold to locals and art collectors alike… and now, only a few limited edition prints remain. Oh, in addition to the eye-catching original, which is currently available for £7,500 if your budget stretches that far…!

So, you’re probably wondering: how can I get hold of a print? And, where can I view (or purchase!) the original?

The answer is at our upcoming RSGS Christmas Fair, on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December. At this festive occasion, there will be cheer, merriment and scintillating gift ideas on offer. In addition to Rob Hain’s painting, guests will also have the chance to meet Jo Woolf, the author of our recently commissioned book, The Great Horizon, peruse some of our priceless archive pieces, support some adventurous students from Perth Academy, and indulge in some tasty yuletide treats!

What’s not to love?

The Christmas Fair is free of charge and open to all, so please come along to the Fair Maid’s House, Perth, PH1 5LU for an early dose of festive fun on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December. Open daily between 10:30 and 16:00.

Retail Prices of Rob Hain’s Limited Edition Prints:

600 x 400 = £120 (no frame)

600 x 400 = £220 (framed)

Day Out from Perth – Rannoch & Tummel

Day Out from Perth – Rannoch & Tummel

For our latest Day Out From Perth, we’re heading to Rannoch & Tummel. In this remote and peaceful area are vast swathes of woodland, majestic mountains and some of the most picturesque loch scenery you’ll see in Scotland.

So we’re looking forward to getting out on the water and enjoying some stunning views on and around the lochs. And because 2017 is Scotland’s year of History, Heritage and Archaeology, we’ll be exploring the past too.

9.45am – Edina’s Kitchen, Dunalastair Hotel Suites

We set off from Perth around 8.30am on a crisp autumn morning. The road trip is part of the day out – once we’re off the A9 we’re surrounded by wooded gorges, roaring waterfalls, glassy lochs glinting in the mist, and the trees and ferns taking on their autumn colours. (Come in a couple of weeks and it will look even more spectacular!)

We spot that the Dunalastair Hotel Suites (formerly the Dunalastair Hotel) has had a makeover since we were last here. We have some delicious coffee and pastries from Edina’s Kitchen in the comfortable lounge area, which is furnished with plush velvet sofas, statement lighting and chic accessories. Feeling refreshed, we head to our first activity.

10.30am – Highland Exploration Loch Cruise

Newly launched tour company Highland Exploration runs a variety of tours around this fascinating area. They offer loch cruises, Land Rover trips around the loch and off-road, and evening safaris where you can watch the animals come down from the hills to feed in the dusk light. You can also do guided walks or arrange a private charter.

We start with a loch cruise, departing from Kinloch Rannoch Marina. We meet skipper Duncan Richardson there, who gives us our lifejackets and delivers a safety briefing, then shows us onto the boat, Raineach, a comfortable, well-appointed cabin RIB that can seat 9 passengers.

We’ve asked for a shorter version of the usual 90-minute tour so that we can try out lots of other things today, and Duncan is happy to oblige. He says, “I like to adapt the tour when I see what interests people. Some groups love hearing stories of the clans and the Jacobites, some love to sit outside and watch the scenery, and others like me to switch off the engine in the middle of the loch so they can watch the osprey diving for fish.”

We head straight up the loch’s middle, hearing fascinating tales of warring clans, cattle rustlers, estate owners and crannog dwellers. We’re overlooked at one end of the loch by one of Scotland’s most famous munros, Schiehallion, which translates from Gaelic as “the Fairy Hill of the Caledonians”. At the other end we can see Buachaille Etive Mor, and many other peaks in between.

Duncan points out the almost-hidden spire of a building that was once a private school on the loch’s edge. “How lovely to go to school here,” I remark, until he tells us that pupils had to swim across the loch every morning before breakfast! We also see a tower built on a submerged crannog, and the impressive Rannoch hydro-electric power station, as well as the Black Wood of Rannoch.

And being a local lad, Duncan knows who owns all of the estates, and which famous people have visited them (Winston Churchill loved to escape from the pressures of politics and stay at Rannoch Lodge!). It’s a fascinating insight into life on the loch.

11.45am – Land Rover Exploration

We’re almost sorry to have to get off the boat, but when we see the Highland Exploration Land Rover waiting for us on the south-west shore, we’re excited to start the next part of our day out.

We pile in and Duncan takes us past the old Barracks and the River Gaur up to Rannoch Moor, a vast and atmospheric landscape. Duncan has many years of experience on country estates and he’s expert at spotting wildlife. At one point he stops the Land Rover and says, “There’s a group of red deer now.” None of us townies can see anything! Then we borrow his the binoculars and, sure enough, about 500 metres away is a group of deer munching on the autumn heather. And they’re exactly the same colour as the heather, so we’d never have spotted them on our own. That’s the great thing about a guided tour!

As it’s approaching lunchtime and we’re approaching Rannoch Station, where better to stop for a bit of lunch?

12.45pm – Lunch at Rannoch Station Tea Room

If you’ve never been to Rannoch Station Tea Room before, you’re in for a treat. And if you have been before, you need to come back, as I think the cakes are even bigger and tastier than they were last time we visited.

Rannoch Station must be the best-located station in the country. Nestled on the edge of Rannoch Moor, it’s as remote as they get, yet you can get the sleeper train up here from London Euston and the West Highland line train from Glasgow.

The tearoom and visitor centre stand right on the middle of the platform with a train line either side. The tearoom is a welcoming café where Jenny and Bill serve delicious, comforting, homemade food, including those mouth-watering cakes. We order tasty leek and potato soup, a hot dog and a toastie. Jenny brings us a pot of delicious coffee and we finish off with some homemade tablet to take away.

We pop into the charming little visitor centre, which tells visitors more about the Rannoch area and the station in days gone by.

Then we hop back into the Land Rover and Duncan drives us down the south side of the loch where we see plenty of Forestry Commission signs, which mean some great walks in this area. Duncan recommends the walk up to the site of the Summer Village, where the crofters used to spend the warmer months before heading down to the loch side in winter.

We also pass by the Black Wood of Rannoch, which is the largest natural (i.e. unmanaged) wood in Scotland. There’s something magical about it, with its mossy forest floor and craggy boughs – as if a woodland spirit could be spotted in the trees at any moment…

We’re back at Kinloch Rannoch a few miles later and we bid farewell to our host and thank him for our fantastic tours. They really are the best way to see the loch, as you get the perspective from the water and from the land. Highland Exploration’s website will be up and running soon but in the meantime you can email info@highlandexploration.com or call 07795 245748 to book your trip, at any time of the year (weather permitting).

2.15pm – The Shed Gallery, Kinloch Rannoch

Regular readers will know that we love a gallery, so we pop into The Shed Gallery in Kinloch Rannoch, a compact space which has a delightful selection of colour and black-and-white photographs taken in the local area and beyond. There are also calendars and other gifts for sale. This area lends itself so well to photography, and the gallery is well worth a visit.
It must surely be time for afternoon coffee, so we leave beautiful Rannoch and head for its equally attractive neighbour Tummel, stopping off at The Inn at Loch Tummel. It’s an attractive stone-built inn, recently refurbished and under new ownership. There’s a delicious smell of peat in the bar where we order coffee, and we can imagine coming back here for a cosy dinner soon. The menu is all about local produce, with seasonal dishes incorporating products from the kitchen garden and fresh eggs from their own hens.

3.45pm – Queen’s View Visitor Centre, Loch Tummel

After coffee we head for our last stop of the day. You can’t come to the Tummel area without stopping to see the Queen’s View, a vista from high above Loch Tummel to the other end, with islands dotted through the water and a waterfall tumbling down the far side. No matter how often I’ve seen this view it never fails to impress. Even on a misty afternoon it’s breathtaking.

Complementing the beautiful view (which was thought to be named after Isabella, the first wife of Robert the Bruce), there are forest walks, a café with outdoor seating and a visitor centre. We’re happy simply to take in the view before heading home.

 

4.30pm – Homeward bound

It’s been a fantastic day in the Rannoch & Tummel area. It feels like a remote part of the world, peaceful and relaxed, away from the crowds – yet it’s only an hour and a bit from Perth by car or train. We highly recommend you come for some adventures of your own soon.

Happy Mondays: Week 4 – Waterfalls

Happy Mondays: Week 4 – Waterfalls

It’s been pouring down for 12 hours, it’s still raining and the forecast looks miserable for the rest of the day, how do you have an enjoyable microadventure in these conditions?  Waterfalls!  In spate, they are at their most impressive, and Perthshire has a lot (who knew – not me!) of waterfalls.  The idea stemmed from wanting to go the Falls of Bruar, so I did some research to see what other waterfalls there are in Perthshire, and there are a lot!
