Believed to be Kilchurn Castle ruins on Loch Awe, Highlands. A bit about the artist: John W Ewbank (4 May 1799 – 28 November 1847), was an English-born landscape and marine painter largely operational from Scotland. Ewbank was born at Darlington on 4 May 1799, the son of Michael Ewbank, an innkeeper. He was adopted as a child by a wealthy uncle who lived at Wycliffe, on the banks of the River Tees, in the North Riding of Yorkshire. Intended for the Roman Catholic priesthood, he was sent to Ushaw College, from which he absconded. In 1813 Ewbank was apprenticed to Thomas Coulson, an ornamental painter in Newcastle. In around 1816 he moved with Coulson to Edinburgh, where he had some lessons with Alexander Nasmyth. He found work both as a painter and a teacher. He was nominated in 1830 one of the foundation members of the Royal Scottish Academy. Having become a success with history painting, he took to drink, and fell into poverty. In 1833 he is listed as living at 7 Union Street on the eastern fringe of the New Town in Edinburgh. He died of typhus fever in the infirmary at Sunderland, 28 November 1847" (source: Wikipedia).
