Photograph of the loch with trees standing on the banks of the loch reflected in the surface of the water. In the distance are mountains.

Loch Tay is a freshwater loch and is the sixth largest loch in Scotland. Queen Victoria was a frequent visitor to the loch during her visits to Lord Breadalbane who owned property at one end of the loch. 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.
