Ian Middleton Turns 70 and Paints Monarch of the Glen

On the 27th October 2016 Ian celebrated his 70th birthday in style. His Scottish roots led him to enjoy a week long celebration entertaining 35 guests at the estate in Inverness where the TV series Monarch of the Glen was filmed. The castle referred to as Glenbogle in the series was also used to accommodate a retaking of the Ian and his wife Jayne’s 30 year marriage vows.

The famous painting of the Monarch by Edwin Landseer in 1851 was much too resist for Ian and to mark the occasion he generated copy but with more of the legs and ground showing than the original.
