Drovers

These two drovers have lit a fire and prepared brose, a mixture of oatmeal and water. This is a postcard showing the work of the Scottish artist R R McIan. It is one of a series of illustrations in which he portrays aspects of rural life in the Highlands. The illustrations were published in the book 'Gaelic gatherings, or the Highlanders at Home on heather, river and loch', published 1847-49, with accompanying text by James Logan.

In his text, Logan states that drovers were men of great integrity and were entrusted with valuable herds of cattle to take to Smithfield market in London
