Description

A vintage style art print of the Cloughmore Stone, Rostrevor, County Down.

Known locally as “The Big Stone”, Cloughmore Stone is a huge granite boulder perched on a mountainside almost 1,000 feet above the village of Rostrevor, County Down, Northern Ireland. It sits on the slopes of Slieve Martin in Kilbroney Park, overlooking Rostrevor Forest, Carlingford Lough and the Cooley Peninsula. It is popular destination for visitors, and is part of a National Nature Reserve and Area of Special Scientific Interest.

The granite boulder, which has a calculated mass of 50 tonnes, is a glacial erratic, thought to have been transported from Scotland (from an island in Strathclyde bay) and deposited about 10,000 years ago by retreating ice during the last Ice Age. It sits on a relatively flat area of Silurian metasedimentary rock.

Local legend has it that the stone was thrown from the Cooley Mountains, on the other side of Carlingford Lough, by the giant Fionn mac Cumhaill.

Specification

PRINTS All prints produced with the highest quality long-life archive inks on 250g heavyweight paper and are supplied rolled in strong 7.5cm (3″) diameter postal tubes for reduced curl and safe transport. The pictures supplied suit standard frame sizes that are available in many furnishing and hardware stores such as Ikea. The black outline is to show the edges of the print and to demonstrate what the print would look like in a frame. The finished prints do NOT have the James Kelly Art watermarks shown on the screen previews.

Shipping

I post pictures all over the world. So, if you have a loved one in far off places, enter their delivery address at checkout and I’ll happily ship to them directly. Prints are shipped rolled-up in strong, wide postal tubes, ready for framing. UK – Standard UK shipping usually takes around 1 - 3 days. International – Standard (from approximately $10) or Tracked and Signed (from approximately $15) typically takes 7 to 10 days to the USA. Standard 50x40cm pictures are kept in stock and usually dispatched within 24 hours (excluding weekends) - all other sizes are printed to order and usually take an extra 24 hours to dispatch. *** As I live out in the country, last postal and courier collection times are quite early, therefore orders placed after 10am will likely not be shipped until the following working day. I always do my best to ensure that orders are shipped within 1 or 2 working days.

Framing

I don't supply framed prints, but all my prints are in sizes to suit off-the-shelf frames as available from furnishing and hardware stores such as Ikea, B&Q, etc. Picture frame size camparison
