It is suggested that this engraving
of Loch Awe is based on a view Turner sketched while in Scotland during
1801. Whilst touring Argyll at this
time he made a great many detailed drawings of the area that would supply him with reliable source material in
Kilchurn Castle sits near to the head
of Loch Awe. This print, published
in 1847, is one of a small number of
large single plates completed during Turner's lifetime but made from much earlier watercolour designs.
