Janet Carolan has suggested that this sketch depicts Rosemarkie Peninsula with the Moray Firth in the distance.1 The buildings at the end of the peninsula (actually called Chanonry Point) still look similar today, and Fort George can be seen from this point as it appears at the far right of the sketch. Turner made a number of sketches of Fort George from Rosemarkie and Fort Rose (see folio 12 verso; D27066 for references).
