This is a view of Penrhyn Castle from the south with Beaumaris Castle on Anglesey visible beyond. This is likely to be the work exhibited at the Society of Painters in Water-colours in 1832, no.103 as 'Penrhyn Castle, with Puffin Island in the Distance' which sold for 20 guineas. Puffin Island sits off the north-east coast of Anglesey.
