First Snow at Whistlefield542 viewsAn oil on canvas painting by James Kay RSA RSW entitled 'First Snow at Whistlefield", which in 2014 was valued at £1,500. Kay lived there at Crimea (now Dalriada), Portincaple for 33 years and worked in a studio at 79 West Regent Street, Glasgow. The house belonged to his brother Alec, a shipping office manager.

James painted an elaborate mural of scenes from the Crimean War on the walls of the main entrance. Image date unknown.
