The Inspiration behind the Colour:
The Storr is a rocky hill on the Trotternish Peninsula. The hill presents a steep rocky eastern face overlooking the Sound of Raasay, contrasting with gentler grassy slopes to the west. The Storr is prime example of the Trotternish landslip, the longest such feature in Great Britain. The area in front of the cliffs of the Storr is known as the Sanctuary. This has a number of weirdly shaped rock pinnacles, the remnants of ancient landslips.
Legend has it that Old Man of Storr was a giant who had lived in Trotternish. When he died, he was buried with his finger left sticking out, creating the ridges. To get up to the Old Man, it is a constant climb. At first, the trail is wide and covered with gravel. Your reward, if he is not covered in mist, is coming eye to eye with the Old Man of Storr.
Please note: Whilst we try to replicate each colour on our website, colour on screen may vary due to a number of factors including screen resolution. We therefore advise that you order a colour card or sample pot to check actual finished colour.
Paint Finishes Explained:

- Durable: Exceptionally durable so perfectly suited to bathrooms and kitchens, along with other busy areas such as hallways. Durable emulsion provides a soft sheen finish.
- Satin: Extremely robust and durable eggshell finish that is ideal for all interior woodwork and metal. From furniture pieces, kitchen cupboards, radiators and the underside of baths to skirting boards and doors, this is the ideal complement to Matt or Durable emulsion
