Michael Knowles writes:

In 1872 Percy was exhibiting works based on sketches taken from both Scotland and Snowdonia in North Wales and I suspect the latter for this picture due to the dress of the figures. Then this is most probably on the lower slopes of Moel Siabod looking up to the mountain’s peak on it’s northern side. As usual the artist has captured his subject well with all the nuances that are his personal trademark.
