Across the top half of the page is a view north-east from Fort Augustus.1 We look along the River Oich towards the stone three-arched Old River Oich Bridge (only one arch of which still stands). To the right of the bridge is Inveroich House on Inveroich Point between the river and the Caledonian Canal. Here the river and canal flow into Loch Ness, which at the southern end is bordered by large hills. More of the town is seen in a similar view on folio 18 (D26996).
At the bottom of the page is a sketch of a ridge of hills, perhaps those on the eastern side of Loch Ness. At the centre of the page is a slight and obscure sketch that may depict rooftops.
For references to further sketches of Fort Augustus, see folio 18.
