Catalogue entry

Inscribed ‘Loch Venachar’ by Turner, this view of the loch is probably from the west with Ben Ledi at the left. At the top of the page Turner has made a separate sketch of distant hills. There is another view of the loch on folio 41 (D26672; CCLXXII 3a).
For a full list of Turner’s sketches of the Trossachs, see the Loch Ard sketchbook Introduction.
