Meet the Artists: Lynne Strachan and Mary Bourne


During 2021 artists Lynne Strachan and Mary Bourne developed an arts project in The Cabrach, a remote upland area in Moray, just over the border with Aberdeenshire, and close to where they both live. Their project set out to find ways for people to reconnect, with each other and with nature, through activities such as sketching, walking, photography and jewellery making. Bourne and Strachan explored the area on foot – alone, together and guided by people with local knowledge. Their exhibition highlights some of the challenges facing The Cabrach community, as well as showcasing this beautiful area and encouraging others to come and enjoy it.
