This view has been identified as looking south-east from the summit of Ben Arthur.1 The view is framed at the right by the shoulder of the rocky summit of the mountain, and we look over Loch Long to Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond. Turner made another sketch from the mountain’s summit on folio 33 of this sketchbook (D26500), and continued to sketch as he descended the eastern slopes of the mountain towards Loch Long (folios 59–61; D26552–D26556).
