Murdoch MacLean of Lochbuie by unknown artist

Family tradition states that this painting depicts Murdoch MacLean of Lochbuie, who was Ensign and later Lieutenant in The Black Watch. However, further research indicates that Murdoch may not have served in The Black Watch, but in the 114th Regiment.
Alternatively, the painting may depict Archie MacLean, a cousin of Murdoch, who served with the Royal Highland Volunteers around the period the painting was executed.
