Lord Mungo, the fifth son of the Marquess of Atholl, is dressed for hunting. He wears a belted plaid - a double width of tartan about five metres long, belted around the body to form a kilt and cloak. This traditional highland costume is worn with a fashionable doublet. He holds a flintlock sporting gun and carries two pistols in his belt. He also has a dirk and a ribbon basket sword. His servant, in the background, carries a longbow, used for hunting deer. Lord Mungo died young, fighting the Spanish in Panama in Central America.
