A small serpentine sea loch, just north of the larger and more famous Loch Etive, Loch Creran is surrounded by magnificent scenery, many peaks rising to over 3,000 ft. Cadell’s scene is filled with colour and richness as he records typical phenomena in mountain areas: huge shadows racing across softly-coloured hills, low cloud, gleaming bright water and verdant pasture. It was vibrant work of this quality that led to Cadell, Peploe, Fergusson and Hunter being labelled ‘the Scottish Colourists’ in 1948.
