In 'Lochaber No More' Nicol depicts this atrocity with a high level of emotional intensity, with the stark figures looking wilfully back at their lost home. Their meagre belongings surround them, most notably their frail dog, poignantly evoke their desperate position. The title stems from both a traditional lament favoured by departing emigrants and a song by Scottish poet Allan Ramsay which tells of an enlisted Highlander’s nostalgia for his home country.
