This magnificent painting hangs in the Goth Staircase Gallery and will soon be joined with other commissioned artworks by local artists.

Jim provides the team at the Goth with advice on everything, from how to avoid crushing geraniums to great stories of Prestonpans - both past and present.

The unveiling of the specially commissioned portrait was a very understated affair with a few close friends and family members attending as well as the members of the Prestoungrange Arts Festival. The Baron of Dolphinstoun unveiled the masterpiece and gave a short speech thanking Jim for his time, effort, knowledge and friendship.
