This sketch shows a view of Inverness from the western shore of the River Ness with the ‘7’ arches of the old Ness Bridge, the steeples of the Old High Church (far left) and the Tollbooth. In the foreground is a rough depiction of a figure in a small boat (or perhaps two small boats). Turner incorporated this detail in the foreground of his watercolour of Inverness circa 1833 (Inverness Museum and Art Gallery, The Highland Council),1 the composition of which was based on the sketch on folio 2 (D27047).
