Accession no.: Y: 2012/20/9
Object name: Sketch
Title: East Loch Fyne, trapper’s hut, Hold-with-Hope, North-East Greenland
Description: One of two views of huts at Loch Fyne drawn on consecutive days, the artist noted "On a sunny morning we walked from the Sirius Loch Fyne Hut, across the sandy flats of the Bendelv, to eventually reach the Bunnhuset Hut on the eastern side of Loch Fyne, where Robert Burton established our camp for three days. Bunnhuset, now derelict, was built by Norwegian trappers in 1926. We used the Hut for cooking and Robert did a few repairs to the roof and walls. On the following day Robert led three of us into Tobias Dal, while Hugh Montgomery rested his injured knee (he had fallen into a small river just before we had reached Bunnhuset)."
