LAND And Sea
A superb piece of modern sculpture, from the famed creator of 'The Angel Of The North', Antony Gormley. In this monochrome image, the sculpture appears to be gazing out to the distant Ailsa Craig partially obscured by July early morning haze.

The Landmark Trust webpage for nearby Saddell Castle includes a YouTube clip of the sculpture and surroundings and the following information is reproduced from there.

'LAND comprises five life-size standing sculptures by Antony Gormley cast in iron and installed at five Landmark Trust sites across the UK for 12 months from May 2015. The works have been conceived in direct response to each unique location. Standing on a rock in front of 16th century Saddell Castle, the work faces the Kilbrannan Sound and the Isle of Arran. Accessible on foot at low tide, the sculpture is partially submerged at high tide.'
