Photograph of the west buttress from the corrie of Lochnagar with sharply ascending scree slopes interspersed with snow cover. On the right of the foreground is seated a man on a boulder, wearing Scottish Highland costume.

Lochnagar, also know as Beinn Chiochan, is a mountain in the Grampians of Scotland located within the Balmoral estate. This photograph is typical of the album prints that were popular during the mid 1860's. These photographs were often taken from one half of a stereoscopic negative and are typically of a square format. 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.
