Catalogue entry

This page contains five sketches of mountains as seen from a loch. This sketchbook covers sketches of Lochs Lomond, Long, Goil, Fyne, Katrine and Arklet, but there are sketches of Loch Lomond on the reverse of this page, making that a likely location for the sketches on the present page. At the centre of the page is a sketch of a view up a loch from the shore, with shapes that may indicate a figure and a horse or cow. This could have be a view north from the landing at Luss on Loch Lomond.
