  • The Monarch of the Glen is one of the most famous British paintings of the nineteenth century. For many people it encapsulates the grandeur and majesty of Scotland’s Highlands and wildlife. The iconic painting was acquired for the nation in March 2017 after a high-profile fundraising campaign. Inverness is the first venue on a 4-city tour across Scotland which also includes Perth, Paisley and Kirkcudbright. As well as thanking everyone who contributed to the acquisition of the painting, the tour is intended to stimulate debate about contemporary responses to the painting.
