From the hilltops above Elgol pier, the two larger sketches on this page look towards the Cuillin Mountains at the head of Loch Scavaig and towards the entrance of Loch Coruisk. Gars-bhein is at the left with Sgurr na-Stri at the right and Loch na Cuile and Loch nan Leachd in between. There are further studies of the loch on folios 37 verso, 38, 69, 70, 72 verso and 78 verso–79 (D26509, D26510, D26752, D26754, D26579, D26591–D26592).1
At the top of the page is a small sketch of a town on the coast with a towered building. The town is unlikely to be anywhere on Skye, so the drawing must have been made on a separate occasion. It bears some resemblance to the small sketch of Port Glasgow from Greenock on folio 17 (D26468).
