    Despite the inscription, this was misidentified as a Welsh view in the 2000 exhibition. This sketchbook page dates from Cristall’s only trip to Scotland in July and August 1818. Glen Falloch runs between Crianlarich and the north end of Loch Lomond mostly following the course of the river Falloch. A similar, although smaller, brown wash sketch drawn at Killin in Scotland and dated 1818 is in the Oppé collection in the Tate Gallery. Two finished watercolours of Scottish views are in the V & A, `A Scottish peasant girl embroidering muslin at Luss, Loch Lomond’ dated 1846, and `Highlander Drovers at Inverary.’

    Cristall visited the Isle of Wight shortly after his marriage in the summer of 1812 and exhibited seventeen views of the island between 1813 and 1820. One of his most important patrons, James Vine, owned a house at Niton on the south coast of the Isle of Wight. Binstead is on the north coast between Fishbourne and Ryde.

Cristall's only trip to Scotland was in July and August 1818. Luss stands on the west bank of Loch Lomond.
