View of Loch Long in western Scotland. Loch Long is a sea loch which at its south west end opens on to the Clyde of Firth. The loch measures approximately 20 miles in length and its width varies between 1 and 2 miles. The loch has an interesting recent history and was used during the Second World War as a testing ground for torpedos and contains numerous wrecks. The artist Thomas Walmsley (1763- 1806) was an accomplished artist and follower of the picturesque school of painters, fashionable in the 19th century. Walmsley began his career as a scene painter at the Opera House in London and is known for his dramatic use of colour.
