Catalogue entry

With what looks like a sandy bay in the foreground and tree-covered hills behind, this is likely to be a view of the northern end of Loch Achray as seen from the western end. Turner made a number of sketches of this area, known as the Trossachs; see folio 49 (D26532) for references.
