Catterline Kincardineshire some 2 miles north of Kinneff, a charming fishing village perched on an elevated cliff top ridge above its own picturesque little bay, has gained some fame as an artists retreat and for its old inn.

But while its line-fishermen still ply their trade, water skiiers and other marine sports people find its pier sheltered bay a convenient haven.

Catterline is first recorded as Katerlin in the 12th century and relics of its ancient church dedicated to St Catherine survive in the kirkyard, Where the rude aumbry and a fragment of a coffin slab bearing an incised cross and sword are built into the wall: it was later a Favourite resort of smugglers. As a village Catterline offers the visitor a delightful base, offering holiday rentals in B&B and Self Catering.

Among the artists who ‘discovered’ Catterline and its potentialities was Joan Eardly, R.S.A., one of the most distinguished landscape painters since William McTaggart the Elder, Made A.R.S.A. In 1955. she achieved R.S.A. in l963 (the youngest woman ever to do so) shortly before she died in the same year, aged forty two. Her work is much sought after, and three landscapes are in the Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh.

Another member of the modern Glasgow school who Went to live at Catterline is James Morrison. A.R.S.A. (1973), born in I932 and also a landscape painter.
