Robson made repeated visits to Scotland and the north of England. He first visited Scotland in 1809 and on his return to London showed the first of his numerous highland views at the Associated Painters in Water Colours and then at the Society of Painters in Oil and Water Colours. A smaller watercolour of this view, without the addition of figures and dogs in the foreground is in the Tate collection (T01012). Robson published a series of forty mountain landscapes in 1814, ‘Scenery of the Grampians’ which were etched by Henry Morton after his drawings. These were republished in 1819 as hand-coloured aquatints.
