Monarch Of The Glen Tartan

Refine search

Monarch of the Glen has several Scottish references.  It is the name of a famous painting by Sir Edwin Landseer from 1851.  In oil-on-canvas it was commissioned as part of a series of three panels to hang in the Palace of Westminster.  It depicts a stag set against the violet hills and skies of an isolated landscape.  In addition the name refers to a novel by Compton Mackenzie from 1941; a Scottish comic farce novel, it depicts the life in the fictional Scottish castle of Glenbogle.  

Probably most well-known, is the BBC television series – ‘Monarch of the Glen’ – which is based on the Mackenzie books although not set in the 30s and 40s.  The series was broadcast between 2000-2005, completing seven series.  The name also refers to a novella by Neil Gaiman in his 2006 anthology ‘Fragile Things’.
