Old Man of Storr

Old Man of Storr at CharlesCockburn.com

The ancient rock formation, known as the Old Man of Storr, watches over the rugged landscape of the Isle of Skye.



The story

"The Old Man of Storr watches over the rugged landscape of the Isle of Skye. Long ago, a massive landslide on the northeast edge of Skye created this jagged terrain. The 160-foot high formation sits atop the Trotternish Ridge.

Legend has it that a giant once lived on the Trotternish Ridge. When he was laid to rest after his death, his thumb, the “Old Man”, remained partially above ground, creating the rock formation we see today."

Our Gallery-quality Prints are individually crafted with care on archival photo paper by our professional printing partners.

They feature a metallic finish that creates images with exceptional visual interest and depth.

Each image is sure to captivate and inspire.


  • The Gallery Quality prints are unmounted and unframed. We recommend having them professionally framed to match your personal style and decor.

Canvas gallery wraps are a unique and beautiful way to display your favorite wild & scenic images. No framing required. Simply hang it on a wall, lean it on a mantle, or display it on an easel and enjoy!

The museum-quality canvas is wrapped around a sturdy wooden frame, with the image covering the entire surface, including the edges – no ugly white or black borders like you may have seen with low-quality canvas prints.


  • Our Canvas Gallery Wraps have a frame depth of 1-1/2″.
  • Each print comes pre-installed with backing paper, bumpers, and a sawtooth hanger, making displaying on your walls easy.

Metal prints are created by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. You’ve never seen a more brilliant and impressive print! Colors are vibrant and breathtaking. The high-gloss finish displays unsurpassed detail and clarity.

Your chosen images will take on a magical luminescence that will inspire your adventurous spirit.


  • Metal Prints feature a slightly rounded (1/8″) corner.
  • Float mount hangers are pre-installed on each print, making hanging on your walls a breeze. Float mount hangers give your images a subtle and intriguing floating effect.


Every fine art image is custom printed just for you. Printing times typically take between 5 to 7 business days and are then shipped via standard delivery methods. Shipping times vary but are generally less than 7 days from the time of shipment.
