This dramatic scene of a carriage accident is likely to be a record of an actual event. In this case the landscape is painted in sufficient detail to identify the stretch of road which runs from Inverness (to the left of the picture) towards Nairn. On the left stands Castle Stuart, with ships in the Moray Firth beyond.
