The ruins of Dunbar Castle are seen here from nearby to the east. Continuing from folio 51 verso (D26014; CCLXVII 51a), this view of the castle and the rocky headland on which it sits is almost identical to two studies that Turner made on a previous visit to Dunbar in 1818 (Tate D13632, D13639–D13640; Turner Bequest CLXVII 29, 31c–32). Those studies contributed to his watercolour, Dunbar circa 1823 (private collection).1
For more information on this visit to Dunbar see folio 48 (D26008; CCLXVII 48).
