Catalogue entry

This view of Castle Campbell was made from the approach road to the south-east. The ruins stand on a hill at the south of the Ochil Hills. Turner’s sketch shows the tower house and the Hall Range, with a stone archway on the rocky knoll known as John Knox’s Pulpit to the left (see also folio 15; D26717; CCLXXII 27a).
Turner made sketches of the castle from all around. See folio 6 verso (D26688; CCLXXII 12) for references.
