Catalogue entry

The shoreline depicted in this sketch is recognisable as Loch Ness looking north from near Fort Augustus (see for example the sketch inscribed ‘Loch Ness’ on folio 16 verso; D26993). At the top right of this page is a smaller sketch showing the eastern shore (as seen at the right of the larger sketch) in more detail. For references to Turner’s sketches of Loch Ness see folio 18 verso (D26997).
