At Gairlochy, Caledonian Canal

This postcard, part of Tuck's Oilette series, shows a painted scene at Gairlochy, on the Caledonian Canal. The painting's warm colours suggest summer weather. A steamer can be seen travelling up the canal. A ribbon-bound bunch of foxgloves has been painted in the upper right corner, labelled 'good luck.'

Gairlochy is a small settlement in the Great Glen, located three miles from Spean Bridge, on the south-eastern end of Loch Lochy. The small township got its name from the artificial waterfalls created by the diversion of the Caledonian Canal into the River Spean.
