Scottish lords in a hunting party move through a mountain valley. The image echoes a ballad by Sir Walter Scott that laments the death of chief Ronald and tells how he left the group with his hounds to tryst with a sweetheart, then encounters her ghost. The work comes from a series of lithographs Bonington made in 1826 after drawings by Pernot titled "Picturesque Views in Scotland."
