Black-and-white, waist-length portrait of a man in Scottish clothing. He is wearing a dark, brimless hat that is tilted over the right side of his head. He has dark hair, which covers the left side of his forehead. He is leaning forward and his proper right arm is bent at the elbow and in front of his body, and he is holding a wooden stick with a band of metal around the end. He is smiling and wearing a dark suit and tie, and there is a piece of plaid cloth draped over his proper left shoulder.
