This painting is of a prominent local scene, Urquhart Castle, and is by Sir William MacTaggart. His early work resembles the style of the highly coloured landscapes of the Scottish Colourists such as S. J. Peploe. MacTaggart's works show energetically applied brushstrokes of thick paint, often in bright colours, which over the years became increasingly impressionistic in the artist's efforts to convey mood and atmosphere.
