There are two sketches of Roslin ‘Castle’ on this page. The lower sketch is of the ruins from the south-east with the ruinous entrance way accessible via a bridge over a ditch. The upper sketch may shows the bridge again, but from the east. There is a comparable view in the Scotch Antiquities sketchbook (Tate D13713; Turner Bequest CLXVII 70a). These studies were made in preparation for a commission for the Provincial Antiquities publication, Roslin Castle, circa 1820 (Indianapolis Museum of Art).1
At the left of the page is the continuation of a sketch of a landscape with a town from folio 16 verso (D13481).
