Dunstaffnage Castle is seen here from the beach to the south-east. Pulled up on the beach are a small boat and the wrecked prow and keel of another vessel to its right. Turner took an interest in the object, making a diagrammatic sketch of it on folio 89 (D26916) labelled with the numbers ‘6’, ‘2’ and ‘2’, which are probably measurements in feet: a six-foot keel with a two-foot prow and two feet of the bow still intact. There is also a sketch of the castle from the south-east on folio 89.
See folio 89 for a full list of Turner’s sketches of Dunstaffnage Castle.
