The beautiful scenery of The Trossachs has inspired many artists over the centuries. John Millais painted his famous portrait of Ruskin at Brig O' Turk. Alexander Nasmyth and Horatio McCulloch were famous for their landscapes of Loch Katrine and The Trossachs. The Glasgow Boys revolutionised Scottish Art in the late 19th century by introducing new dynamics, innovation and realism. Today this beautiful area continues to attract and inspire many artists.
