Catalogue entry

The sketches on this page were made at the Falls of Clyde in Lanarkshire. At the top of this page, drawn with the book in the portrait format, is a sketch that probably shows the view upstream along the gorge from Corra Linn,1 though it is a quick and rough sketch that is hard to decipher. Beneath, drawn with the book turned to the right, is the continuation from folio 6 verso (D26270) of a sketch of Corra Castle at Corra Linn. See folio 1 verso (D26260) for references to further sketches of the Falls of Clyde.
