View of a stone bridge in the village of Dalmally in the Western Highlands of Scotland. The village is situated along the Strath of Orchy near to Loch Awe. Dalmally means 'Pebbled valley' and it probably developed as a village for those working for Kilchurn Castle. The Dalmally bridge was built to make the movement of cattle and troops easier and formed part of the road from Tyndrum to Oban. The artist was Thomas Walmsley (1763- 1806). Walmsley was an accomplished artist and follower of the picturesque school of painters, fashionable in the 19th century.
