Photograph of Loch Katrine with a steam boat or yacht anchored in front of a pier that is covered by a thatched roof, supported on wooden poles. In the background are crags covered in foliage and in the foreground, a rocky shore.

Sir Walter Scott immortalised Loch Katrine and the Trossachs in the Scottish Highlands by setting his popular poem the Lady of the Lake written in 1810 in the area, which served to increase the region's popularity as a tourist destination. Another Wilson photograph of Loch Katrine features the steamboat Rob Roy which could be the same vessel in this photograph.
