The sketch on this page has been identified as showing a mill with an overshot wheel that once stood on the hill slopes to the north-west of Tobermory Bay.1 This view is from across the Tobermory River which can be seen at the bottom of the sketch, and at the right Tobermory Harbour can be made out by the masts of boats. For more information about Turner’s time in Tobermory and references to further sketches see folio 1 verso (D26749).
