Catalogue entry

This view of Castle Campbell, drawn with the sketchbook inverted, was made from the approach road to the east.1 The castle stands on a hill above Dollar Burn at the south of the Ochil Hills, with King’s Seat Hill to the west at the right and the Glen of Sorrow to the left. The prominent castle buildings are the tower house at the right and the Hall Range at the left. There are two similar views, though from the north-east, on the reverse of this page: folio 9 verso (D26693; CCLXXII 15).
For references to further views of Castle Campbell see folio 6 verso (D26688; CCLXXII 12).
