Sandby made the drawing after which this print was produced in about 1747. In the print, Sandby’s panoramic survey of Ben Lomond and its surrounding area has been contracted and two men in highland dress have been added to the foreground. A column of marching soldiers and two tents on the banks of the river Leven appear beyond. George Kearsley (1739?-1790) published this view in The Virtuosi’s Museum, which consisted of 108 images of country houses and other places of interest in England, Scotland and Ireland. In the preface, Kearsley explained his choice of subjects by referring to the views decorating Catherine the Great’s Green Frog service, commissioned from Wedgwood only five years before.
