Catalogue entry

The view is continued on folio 175 recto opposite (D03252; Turner Bequest LVI 173). Another drawing of Lochhouse is on folios 173 verso–174 recto (D03249–D03250; Turner Bequest LVI 171a–172), and the subject is discussed under D03249.
Technical notes:
A leaf was torn out between here and folio 175 recto opposite (D03252; Turner Bequest LVI 173), evidently by Turner and before he made the drawing that spans the two pages.
