Description

Vintage style art print of yachts sailing on Rathlin Sound between Rathlin Island and Ballycastle, County Antrim, with Rue Lighthouse and Fairhead in the background.

Rathlin Island is an island and civil parish off the coast of County Antrim in Northern Ireland. It is the only inhabited offshore island of Northern Ireland, with a steadily growing population of approximately 150 people, and is the most northerly inhabited island off the coast of the island of Ireland. The reverse L-shaped Rathlin Island is 4 miles (6 km) from east to west, and 2.5 miles (4 km) from north to south.

The highest point on the island is Slieveard, 134 metres (440 feet) above sea level. Rathlin is 15.5 miles (25 km) from the Mull of Kintyre, the southern tip of Scotland’s Kintyre peninsula. It is part of the Causeway Coast and Glens council area, and is represented by the Rathlin Development & Community Association.

A ferry operated by Rathlin Island Ferry Ltd connects the main port of the island, Church Bay, with the mainland at Ballycastle, 6 miles (10 km) away. Two ferries operate on the route – the fast foot-passenger-only catamaran ferry Rathlin Express and a purpose built larger ferry, commissioned in May 2017, Spirit of Rathlin, which carries both foot passengers and a small number of vehicles, weather permitting.[5][6] Rathlin Island Ferry Ltd won a six-year contract for the service in 2008 providing it as a subsidised “lifeline” service.[7] There is an ongoing investigation on how the transfer was handled between the Environment Minister and the new owners.

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 jskelly.co.uk watermarks shown in the previews on screen.

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.

I can only ship framed prints to the UK and Ireland.
For safety reasons, framed prints are shipped with plastic instead of glass.

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.

Frames

Framed prints are supplied in black frames without a surrounding mount. Frames might vary depending what is available at the time, but I will do my best to ensure that frames in the same order will match. However, due to supply, frame styles for different sizes may vary.

For safety reasons, framed pictures will be shipped with a clear plastic face.

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.

Shipping to UK and Ireland Only
