At the bottom of the page is a sketch of Fort George as seen from the north.1 This is a much clearer sketch of the view on folio 12 verso (D27066), which was probably made from the Rosemarkie Peninsula on the Black Isle. The current sketch is much clearer than that drawing; Turner shaded the walls of the star-shaped fort to help define its shape. He also inscribed the sketch with the numbers ‘5’ and ‘3’, although it is not clear what these refer to.
The other two sketches on this page show a single view, the middle sketch continuing from the sketch at the top of the page. This is the view north along the hilly coast from Chanonry Point at the end of the peninsula at Rosemarkie. There is a sketch of the peninsula itself on the reverse of this page: folio 29 verso (D27088).
