Loch Shiel Scotland Landscape Oil Painting

December 27th, 2009

Loch Shiel, Scotland
12 x 16 oil on canvas
commission (sold)

This painting, painted as a commission, depicts a historic site in the highlands of Scotland in the village of Glenfinnan. It is the site where bonnie Prince Charlie raised his standard at the beginning of the Jacobite rising in 1745. Glenfinnan sits at the north end of Loch Shiel. A monument (a pillar) can be seen at the lakeside at the closest point.

My forbears came from the western isle of Skye, but some of the MacDonalds who were landowners on Skye were also allies of Prince Charles.

I love painting Scotland and hope to return again. Good thing we took a lot of pictures when we were there the last time. Although today there are playing fields and roads and other signs of modern habitation, I tried to paint it as it may have looked more than 200 years ago (except for the horses and wagons and clansmen, that is.)

  1. You managed to get a lot of depth and distance back to those misty mountains. Lovely atmosphere, Karen.

  3. I really thought it was an 18th century painting! You did a wonderful job. As an American who often re-enacts Scottish History in America, I especially enjoyed they way this painting called to me. Once I decided to look onto your site, I was awed by the history behind the beauty. Thank you.
