abstract
This is a scene in the Highlands. The party are surrounded by the spoils of the chase, and the principal figures are in all probability intended to represent Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and the young Prince, afterwards King Edward VII. All three are dressed in the picturesque Scottish costume, in tartan plaid and the men Scotch caps. On his grey horse sits the young lad holding up in his right hand a hare by the ears. In his belt is a knife, and flung across the front of his saddle are a pair of game birds. The Prince Consort stands to the right; a horn hangs by his side and his right hand is place on the horse's neck. Seated behind on another steed is the young Queen looking admiringly at her companions. On the ground at their feet lie a stag and a doe and two Scotch deerhounds stand close by. Parties of gillies are behind on each side of the picture, and far off, winding their way down the mountain path, are two gillies driving a pair of horses, each loaded with a dead stag. Among the grasses on the left are rocky boulders, and the lower part of the horse's hind legs are hidden by the foliage.
