This is a view of Lindisfarne Priory in a desolate landscape. The two distinctive windows at the top of what is the west front of the the old church are arrow loopholes, which were added for defence from potential Scottish attacks. Varley was on Holy Island in 1808 as part of his Northumberland tour and painted the castle several times.
