Summary expansion
The photographs record the rocky landscape of Glen Tilt, and its rivers, the Tilt and the Fender, in particular the well-known cascades of the Fender, and the rocky rapids and salmon leap on the Tilt. Also pictured are landmarks Witches Rock, and Shepherd's Bridge and Black Bridge, as well as two sporting lodges: Forest Lodge, located on the banks of the Tilt, in Glen Tilt, about eight miles from the village of Blair Atholl; and Glen Bruar Lodge, located in Glen Bruar, nine miles from Calvine. The two albums also include a total of 32 photos which document a large deerstalking party, featuring Mr. W.L. Winans, his son Mr. Walter Winans, and Mr. Edward Kennard. Others named in the photos include: J. Macara, R. Macnaughton, S. Liegh, T. Nash, J. Stewart, R. Steward, J. Lamond, P. Lamond, J. Gone, A. Gone, and J. Macdonald. The photos show the men departing on horseback from Forest Lodge, well-supplied with firearms and dressed in kilts and hunting gear. The men break for lunch, sprawled on a hillside, surrounded by the carcasses of the stags they have shot. The horses and gamekeepers wait nearby. Twenty of the photos are close-ups of dead deer; captions highlight the five stags shot by W.L. Winans in a day's stalking, and a "royal" stag (a stag with antlers of more than twelve branches) shot by Mr. Kennard
