The inscription on this page – what looks like: ‘sirog w. Mik’ – is not in itself very illuminating. However, when the inscription on folio 46 (D25613) – ‘W. of Milk’ – is considered, it seems likely that this inscription also refers to the Water of Milk, a tributary of the River Annan near Lockerbie. Turner would have crossed over the river and travelled alongside it for some way during his journey from Lockerbie to Langholm. There is nothing in either this picture or folio 46 to pin down the exact location of the sketches, but the hilly landscape fits the general appearance of the route near Bankshill.
