Catalogue entry

The subject is continued on folio 67 recto opposite (D03040; Turner Bequest LVI 65). The grand composition of Ben More (1174 metres) and its companion peaks attracted Turner over a number of pages in this book; see folios 69 verso–70 recto, 70 verso–71 recto, 71 verso and 73 verso–74 recto (D03045–D03049, D03053–D03054; Turner Bequest LVI 67a–68, 68a–69, 69a, 71a–72).
