Catalogue entry

The faint sketches drawn across the right half of this page depict a building and hills. However, they cannot be identified with so little architectural or topographical information other than to point out that the sketch on the reverse of this page shows a view of hills with the Dornoch Firth (twenty-five miles north of Inverness) in the background, making a view nearby a likely possibility.
