The inscription on this page has helped to confirm its identification as a view of the Bracklinn Falls on the hillside to the north-east of Callander. Although the word is not clear, it does, as Wallace-Hadrill and Carolan have pointed out, begin ‘with B and [end] with ...lin’ suggesting ‘Bracklinn’, or some variation of it, as a likely possibility.1
Drawn with the sketchbook turned to the right is a sketch looking up the Kiltie Water, with the waterfall flowing between rocks. Turner may have written another inscription across the centre of the waterfall, perhaps the word ‘waterfall’? Above and below the sketch are two outlines of mountains. The bottom sketch makes a good match for Ben Ledi, which can be seen to the west. The sketch at the top may be a view further up the hill above the waterfall.
For further sketches of Bracklinn Falls and nearby sites see folio 33 (D26741; CCLXXII 39a).
