A trip to Isle Ornsay on the Isle of Skye in 1978 inspired Laurence Broderick's first stone carving of an otter, where he now holds his annual summer exhibitions. He was able to see otters swimming in the bay below the Gallery An Talla Dearg and learned of Gavin Maxwell - author of 'Ring of Bright Water' - who dedicated much of his life to looking after and writing about these rare and fascinating creatures.
The Scottish Tourist Board have awarded the gallery, An Talla Dearg with three stars in recognition of the very high standard of the sculpture exhibition.
