Glen Sannox, Arran, from Bute

A lesser known Mackean Stewart view of Arran, entitled Glen Sannox, Arran, from Bute. It reminds me (in part) of all those old MacBraynes posters promoting their ferry services, even although they were aerial views.

I remember Dad being unsure of the composition with this picture as there was nothing in the foreground to give the sense of depth; just middle distance and mountain backdrop. Also the positioning of the animals in the fields were problematic. Despite his concerns, it makes for a very pleasing scene.
