Catalogue entry

This sketch looks north across the River Clyde and the deep gorge that it flows through from the south bank at Bonnington Linn. The waterfall is at the right of the sketch with the river, flowing north, to the left. A sketch looking in the same direction, but from the gorge below, is on the reverse of this page: folio 11 (D26279). For further sketches of the Falls of Clyde see folio 1 verso (D26260).
