Half length portrait. The divine faces towards the right. He has long grey hair and beard and an exeedingly long nose. He has a soft white ruff and cuffs and a black gown and skull-cap. In his right hand he holds a red leather-bound book with gilt edges. The background is grey. This appears to be an original portrait from life and it has a certain vividness. it seems to date from the middle of the 17th century and it might represent one of the Rectors of Old College, perhaps Andrew Ramsay.
