Catalogue entry

Across the present page and folio 5 (D26267) is a double-page sketch of the Corra Linn waterfall as seen from the top of the gorge to the north-east near Bonnington Pavilion. At the top of the cliff on the present are the ruins of Corra Castle (see folios 5 verso–6 verso; D26268–D26270), and on the continuing page are the steps cut into the rock that provided access down to the foot of the waterfall from the top of the gorge. For more information on Turner’s visit to the Falls of the Clyde, see folio 1 verso (D26260).
