Reverend Robert Walker was minister of the Canongate Kirk and a member of the Edinburgh Skating Society, the oldest skating club in Britain. The members usually met on the frozen lochs of Duddingston or Lochend in Edinburgh.

Scottish artist Sir Henry Raeburn lived in London and spent some time in Italy but returned to Edinburgh in 1787. Raeburn depicted some of the most popular and relevant people of his day, from Sir Walter Scott to William Stuart Forbes.
