Photograph of a view of Balmoral Castle. A lawned area dominates the foreground. In the middle ground is a set of stairs leading to the castle. Beside the stairs is a path lined with trees.

This photograph is a later carbon copy of the original albumen photograph. Carbon was a process that was less susceptible to fading, unlike an albumen print that is prone to discolouration over time.
