Eriskay Ponies 869/9 Vase

Limited Edition

If you head North-West of Glasgow, you can travel by boat to the remote Hebridean Island of Eriskay. Given its diminutive size, Eriskay is famous. It was on this wild, bleak terrain that in 1745 Bonnie Prince Charlie first landed in Scotland. Almost two centuries later, silver-grey ponies were seen heaving and pulling a heavy cargo of whisky barrels from the from the wrecked ship, SS Politician. From that incident, the story ‘Whisky Galore’ was born. Today, the Eriskay ponies are a critically endangered species, with only 400 left worldwide, but that is an improvement on the 1970’s when the extinction bell was tolling. Vicky shows us Eriskay with all of its rocky grandeur although on the reverse we are treated to a beach and an altogether gentler landscape. Her Eriskay ponies are a ghostly silver-grey, grazing on tough grass among the rocks, their manes swishing in a strong, Hebridean wind.
