Bird's Eye View depicts a hooded crow flying over the Black Isle. The peninsula is the home of the Brahan Seer stories. The Seer was a possibly real/possibly fictional character, also known as Coinneach Odhar (Sallow Kenneth) and is said to have lived near Dingwall in the 17th century. He had the second sight which led him into all sorts of trouble and he eventually came to a sticky end in a barrel of hot tar. Second sight and prophecy are associated with the Black Isle as are the adder stones (stones with a hole through the middle). Looking through one of these holes, one is supposed to be able to see the future. Such stones are found in other places around the British Isles, associated with magic and sometimes referred to as Witching or Hag stones. A large adder stone is depicted on one side of the piece with a map of the Black Isle on the other.
