Monarch of the Glen

Michael Euan Craig

Personal Statement

I captured this photo on the Bachnigarn Estate in the Scottish Highlands while serving in the British Army. I would regularly take my camera with me when working in the glen. Our job was to assist the Royal Family on hunting expeditions and provide security during their yearly stay in the Balmoral Castle. The photo shows the Ghillie (a professional hunter) taking a stag off the hill using the traditional method of horseback.
