Item number: 53.2.B

Sketch of Tarbet Bay on the western side of Loch Lomond in Scotland. The loch is the largest area of fresh water in the British Isles and is shaped like an elongated triangle, with a narrow and deep northern half, with a maximum breadth of 1.5 km, and a wide and relatively shallow southern end, which at its widest point it is 6.8 km. Along with Loch Ness, Loch Lomond is perhaps one of the best known Scottish lochs because it has been much written about both in song and in verse.
