Catalogue entry

This is a continuation of the subject on folio 108 verso opposite (D03122; Turner Bequest LVI 106a). Garth is an isolated tower on the Keltney Burn, which flows from the north down the Strath of Appin to join the River Lyon close to Comrie. Turner made a sketch map of its location on folio 106 verso (D03118; Turner Bequest LVI 104a).
