Catalogue entry

In this rough sketch Roslin Castle is seen from the north-west as in folio 80 verso (D13717; CLXVII 72a). While the outline of the building is quite carefully drawn there are no further architectural details and the river bank of the Esk is suggested rather than carefully recorded.
