Maclauchlan Milne grew up in Edinburgh. He described G L Hunter as a good friend and although not one of the Colourists MacLauchlan Milne spent time in France and was greatly inspired by French Post-Impressionism.

'Larig Ghru' is a good example of his mature work, which resulted from trips to the Scottish Highlands. The palette of the sky, tinged with the greys of implied bad weather and the monumentality of the snow-covered mountains, recall Cezanne.
