Over two pages Turner has sketched a view north across the Firth of Forth towards Fife, with Lauriston Castle on the left. The castle was built in the 1590s as a tower house, and Turner’s drawing shows it as it was before its extension by William Burn in the 1820s for the then owner Thomas Allen. Behind the castle about half a mile to the north is the Firth of Forth with the north bank at Fife. Crammond Island can be seen on this page a mile and a half to the north, and over on folio 62 (D13569) is Inchkeith nearly seven miles to the north-east.
On folio 62, just above Finberg’s stamp, drawn with the sketchbook inverted, is a tiny sketch of a building that may be Roslin Chapel.
