Continued from folio 109 verso opposite (D03124; Turner Bequest LVI 107a), this is a very slight sketch; Finberg suggested that it shows a view ‘near Glen Lyon’,1 but it is more probably a scene on Turner’s route north to Loch Tummel. The rapidly outlined lake is almost certainly Loch Kinardochy, about two miles south of Tummel Bridge; if so, the mountain visible beyond to the left is probably Schiehallion (1083 metres), four miles to the west.
Turner’s route would have taken him past the loch on its eastern side, and he would have seen lake and mountain in this relation (still a popular view today) without having to make a detour. A ‘Scottish Pencil’ view which may show Schiehallion is Tate D03417 (Turner Bequest LVIII 38).
