Ben Nevis, from the end of the Caledonian Canal, 1843 [Scotland]
Mounted in album with PAI4673-PAI4705, PAI4707-PAI4716.; No.34. Technique includes scraped highlights. No. 34 in Fanshawe's Baltic and later album, 1843-1883. Captioned by the artist on the album page below the image, as title. This view was probably taken from somewhere near the village of Banavie, near the south end of the Caledonian Canal that links the lochs of the Great Glen, looking south-east to Ben Nevis at the western end of the Grampians. At 1344 m (4409 ft) it is the highest mountain of the British Isles and, even in Fanshawe's day, was climbed by experienced walkers and admirers of rugged scenery. The 62-mile Caledonian Canal was constructed between 1803 and 1822, to the design of Thomas Telford. Fanshawe married Jane Cardwell on 11 May 1843, when he was a young Commander RN, and this drawing is one of a group (PAI4700 - 4706) recording their first summer holiday together that summer, though his biography (1904) does not give the exact dates.
