greengalloway: Sheila Mullen- Painting the Scottish Dreamtime
Sheila Mullen and her paintings Exhibition of Paintings by Sheila Mullen Opens Saturday 7 December 2013 Workshop Gallery, 183 King Street, Castle Douglas 01556 504234  Born in Glasgow in 1942 where she later studied at the Glasgow School of Art, for the past 35 years Sheila Mullen has lived and painted near the Kinnel Water in Annandale. Sheila’s early work as a landscape painter has recently been recalled by daughter Katy - She was never like some genteel ‘lady artist’ with fine brushes and watercolour-paper, sitting prettily admiring ‘the view’.

Margaret Mitchell MSP – Bothwell Parish Church Quire
That the Parliament understands that Bothwell Parish Church, which is known locally as the Cathedral of Lanarkshire, is the oldest collegiate church in Scotland in which worship takes place; believes that the 14th century building stands on the site of a 6th century church and has many notable features, including the grave slabs of crusading knights and stunning stained-glass windows; notes that its medieval quire, which is the area of a church that provides seating for the clergy and choir, was rebuilt in 1398 by Archibald Douglas, the Third Earl of Douglas, who was known as Archibald the Grim; believes that this intimate inner chapel has an unusual stone-vaulted design and is home to a late Victorian stained-glass window designed by Sir Edward Burne-Jones that depicts the nativity; understands that, although the quire has been restored and altered over the centuries, most recently in 1898 and in 1933, it was recently discovered that the unique roof structure is urgently in need of repair and the area has been deemed unsafe for public use; welcomes the efforts of the congregation and parish to raise funds in order to restore the quire; understands that, thus far, the campaign has raised £1. 2 million of the £2 million needed to save it, and hopes that the remaining funds will be found to ensure that what it sees as both this beautiful and important structure and a significant part of Scotland’s church history is preserved for future generations.

On this day in Scotland: The Battle of Arkinholm
The Battle of Erkinholme was fought on the 1st of May, 1455. The Battle of Erkinholme is more commonly referred to as the Battle of Arkinholm, albeit it's known by some as the Battle of Langholm, primarily because it was fought where the town of Langholm now stands.

Unusual Historicals: Cowards: The Douglases at the Battle of Poitiers
Blythe GiffordThe words "Scotsman" and "coward" are rarely used in the same sentence, but if you look deeply enough, you'll find one or two Scotsmen who chose to "live to fight another day. " Among them were Lord William Douglas, who was a minor character in my book, HIS BORDER BRIDE, and his cousin, Archibald the Grim.
