In this large painting, Byron Cooper superbly captures the illusion of actually standing on the path by the gently rippling water of the Allt Slugan a' Choilich, eyes raised towards the pyramid summit of Hallival, at 723 metres, the second highest peak on Rum. The path rises steeply up Bealach Bairc-mheall before veering left towards the mountain. The island of Rum is a heaven for geologists. The mountains are the remains of a ring of early Paleocene volcanoes that existed millions of years ago when the earth’s continents drifted apart and today’s oceans were formed.
