Catalogue entry

The page belongs to a sequence of similar looking unidentified landscape views across folios 65 verso–68 verso (D26383–D26389). David Wallace-Hadrill has suggested that it may be Craignethan or Douglas Castle, both of which are sketched elsewhere in this book: folios 14 verso and 24 respectively (D26286, D26305), however it does not greatly resemble either.1 Another alternative is Castle Campbell, a sketch of which is on the reverse of this page: folio 68 verso (D26389).The sketch continues slightly at the right on folio 67 verso (D26387).
