"Ballach Roan" by Mairi Hedderwick

A drawing of Ballachroan, a farm between Kingussie and Newtonmore. The buildings are now all ruins. The name is derived from the Gaelic Bail'-a-Chrodhain meaning 'Township of the Sheepfold'.

This work is from a collection of drawings and sketches by the popular writer and illustrator, Mairi Hedderwick. They all have some connection to the village of Newtonmore and many of them also represent the game of shinty. Mairi Hedderwick is best known as the author and illustrator of the much loved Katie Morag series of children's books.
