Drovers herding Highland cattle, Ross-shire, 1890s

A photograph, taken by George Washington Wilson, of two drovers herding Highland Cattle at Loch Tournaig near Poolewe, during the 1890s.

George Washington Wilson was a Scottish photographer who pioneered the development of photography outside the studio and played a part in developing the mass production of photographic prints. He studied art in Edinburgh and London, but eventually set up a studio in his native Aberdeen. Wilson began, as was common, as a portrait photographer, but increasingly moved into landscape photography.
