Photograph of a view of Balmoral Castle and the River Dee. The castle is located in the background and the river is in the middle ground. There are trees and foliage in the foreground.

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.
