Here is, ‘Balbirnie Study – Wildflowers with Saltire’


How time flies, it literally feels like it was yesterday that Archie Forrest was first considering the project.


October 2017. That was the day that we collected the main ‘Wildflowers, Balbirnie’ oil painting from the Archie Forrest Glasgow studio, as you do! Then we drove North across Scotland’s new bridge for the first time. The entire artwork collection gifted, whilst thinking of Scotland’s Tourism and Hospitality.


‘Balbirnie Study – WildFlowers’ – this multimedia work of course became the inspiration for the main oil painting which now hangs in Balbirnie’s main Drawing Room, commemorating our first 25 years as a hotel, 1989 – 2014
