'Camera Studies' Photograph Album - Picnic on Loch Garten, 1904

A group of men and women gather for a summer picnic on the banks of Loch Garten. The photograph is dated July 1904. Loch Garten lies to the east of the village of Boat of Garten.

The image comes from an album of holiday photographs entitled 'Camera Studies'. It contains 11 photos, all but one of which was taken in and around the Grantown on Spey area. Most of the photographs date from 1904.

From the 1860s onwards, the area around Grantown on Spey became an increasingly popular tourist destination. This growth in tourism was due in large part to the arrival of the railway to Grantown in 1863, which enabled far greater numbers of tourists to visit. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's purchase of Balmoral in the 1840s had already done much to boost the appeal of the Highlands to the British public. Indeed, in September 1860 Victoria and Albert visited Grantown itself, staying overnight in the Grant Arms Hotel.
