Loch Lomond 52.a
Artist: Campbell, A.
View of Loch Lomond in Scotland. The loch is famed for its picturesque landscape and for the many islands which rise from the waters, of which Inchmurrin is the largest. Dorothy Wordsworth in her tour of Scotland in 1803 wrote the following words about the loch, “…it was an outlandish scene- we might have believed ourselves in North America. The islands were of every possible variety of shape and surface- hilly and level, large and small, bare, rocky, pastoral, or covered with wood… There were bays innumerable, straits or passages like calm rivers, landlocked lakes, and to the main water, stormy promontories…. The whole scene was a combination of natural wildness, loveliness, beauty and barrenness, or rather bareness, yet not comfortless or cold; but the whole was beautiful”.
