The main sketch on this page bears a close resemblance to the sketch on folio 28 verso (D22977; CCLXVII 28a) which Gerald Finley has identified as Innerwick Castle.1 The ruin sits at the top of a rocky cliff and is seen here from across the glen to the north. There is another similar view on folio 10 verso (D25945; CCLXVII 10a).
At the left of the page with the sketchbook turned to the right is a small sketch of part of the remains of Berwick Castle from the west. Turner made a series of studies of Berwick-upon-Tweed from this position in preparation for his watercolour Berwick-upon-Tweed circa 1832 (whereabouts unknown),2 engraved for volume 12 of Sir Walter Scott’s Poetical Works. See folio 48 verso (D26009; CCLXVII 48a) for more information.
