From the road on the southern bank of Loch Etive just west of Connel Ferry, this view looks north-east towards the mouth of the loch, with Dunstaffnage Castle standing on a promontory at the left. Turner’s view was perhaps more panoramic than it appears in the sketch, showing the north bank of the loch at North Connel, and the rocky headland beyond at the northern mouth of the loch called Ledaig Point. Behind this is the island of Linnhe, with the mountains of Morvern in the distance at the right and Mull at the left. The water is moving rapidly at this point just downstream of Lora Falls, as Turner has indicated in the sketch.
