The drawing was made with the page turned horizontally, and may show Skiddaw (931 metres) from the south, but if the identification is correct, Turner must have travelled south east from Penrith to Keswick, thence south to Borrowdale, and climbed up to Watendlath, if not to High Seat (609 metres) to obtain this view of the famous mountain. The journey would have involved a considerable detour from his most probable route, from Penrith to Ullswater and Ambleside. It seems more likely that this is in fact Blencathra, or Saddleback (868 metres), which Turner could have seen from the Penrith road which he probably took on his way south via Ullswater to Windermere.
