Leitch emphasises the warm welcome that Victoria and Albert received when they arrived in Scotland on their first visit to the country. This watercolour was one of a set commissioned by the Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch, who hosted the royal couple at Dalkeith Palace, as souvenirs for their guests.
