These two views of Dunstaffnage Castle were made from around Dunbeg (formally Dunstaffnage) village to the south of the castle. In the sketch at the top of the page we look over the roofs of a few of the village houses with the steep hillside of Tom Ard rising up to frame the view at the right. The castle stands at the end of a promontory at the mouth of Loch Etive, and beyond the castle is the island of Lismore.
The second sketch was made from a little closer to the castle with Dunstaffnage Bay in the foreground, the western shoulder of Beinn Lora to the right and the hills of Morvern in the distance. There is a similar sketch at the bottom of folio 92 verso (D26923).
For a full list of Turner’s sketches of Dunstaffnage see folio 89 (D26916).
