Loch Katrine 82
Artist and engraver: Sargent, Francis James
Medium: Aquatint, coloured
View of Loch Katrine in Scotland by Francis Sargent (c.1780-1812). This freshwater loch is eight miles in length and approximately one mile in width. The hill of Ben A'an can be seen rising behind the loch and stands to a height of 1750 feet. It is one of the most important sources of water for Glasgow and the surrounding area and an aqueduct was built here in 1859. The loch is perhaps most well known for its association with Sir Walter Scott’s poem ‘The Lady of the Lake’.
