ABOUT DERICK ROBERTSON
Born and raised in Fife, Derek Robertson works from his studio in Sleat and, since graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone Art College in Dundee in 1989, has established a name as one of the country’s foremost wildlife having his paintings printed in several books by Sir John Lister Kay and regularly featured in press, radio and television.

ATLAS Arts has collaborated with local walking groups and artists to curate a series of walks around the Isle of Skye and Lochalsh. This programme connects community, art and the environment through a series of walks designed to highlight different areas of Skye and Lochalsh and introduce participants to the work of local artists and how the environment inspires their creativity.
