Turner Bequest CCLXX 63a
Inscribed in pencil by Turner ‘Calenr’ top, ?‘Dunard Hil’ bottom left inverted, ‘n[...]’ ?‘Campsie Fels’ bottom inverted, ?‘m’ bottom right inverted
Across the bottom half of the page, drawn with the sketchbook inverted, is another view inscribed with several notes. The word above the sketch at the centre may read ‘Campsie Fells’, a range of hills to the south-west of Stirling that Turner sketched from near Stirling Castle (see folio 13 verso; D26461). There are further hill outlines on folios 63 and 64 (D26560, D26562). The other inscriptions on the present page are indecipherable and no further suggested identifications have been made for this sketch.
