This view of Elgin Cathedral is from the north-east. At the left is the presbytery (drawn as a faint outline), with the remains of its rose window represented as a circle, and at the right is the octagonal chapter house, which Turner drew the inside of on the opposite sketchbook page (folio 137 verso; D24212). At the centre of the page is the outline of the north tower at the western end of the cathedral.
Turner dedicated fourteen pages of the Inverness sketchbook to studies of Elgin Cathedral, see folio 139 (D27215) for references.
