Scotland became an increasingly popular tourist destination during the nineteenth century, which turned the creation of photographs for the tourist market into a flourishing activity. Some photographers excelled, notably George Washington Wilson of Aberdeen and James Valentine of Dundee who formed national and international business enterprises. There were several factors involved in attracting tourists to Scotland but undoubtedly the greatest was Sir Walter Scott. His novels and poetry gave a romantic depiction of Scotland, especially its landscape, and this brought visitors flocking to the localities described.
