Stirling Castle is seen here from Ladies’ Rock, a knoll in the cemetery to the south of the castle. To the left of the castle is the Carse of Stirling with Ben Vorlich in the distance. Turner made a similar view from a little closer in more detail on the reverse of this page (folio 16; D26466). For references to further sketches of Stirling, see folio 13 (D26460).
