During the early and mid-1870’s Paul Naftel made several visits to Scotland, and the present sheet may depict a Scottish view. Indeed, it may tentatively be identified as one of several views of the moor near Killin in Perthshire, sent by Naftel to the 1873 and 1874 exhibitions of the Old Watercolour Society.
