The queen and prince admired the Welsh scenery as they travelled by sea up to west Scotland in 1847. Accompanied by their children, the Prince of Wales and Princess Royal, they stopped several times along the Welsh coast to sightsee. The soft, muted palette in Richardson’s watercolour contributes to the picturesque appearance of the ruined castle.
