The Sleeping Warrior

the sleeping warrior, originally uploaded by David Cation.

The profile of the north Arran hills as seen from the Ayrshire coast. It is a well-known West of Scotland view that takes its name from a resemblance of a resting human figure complete with tin hat! Various interpretations of the profile exist but for me the most convincing is that of the A' Chir ridge and Caisteal Abhail when viewed from the Ayrshire coast north of Largs or from the Isle of Bute.
