The log (folio 4) which is illustrated with pen and ink sketches, records a voyage on the yacht ‘The Ladye’ from Loch Hourn to Lewis and Skye in October 1859. The other sketches, which are pasted to large sheets, depict scenes during a voyage on the 'Lotus' to Skye and Rona in October 1855 (folio 19) and were probably added to the later narrative by Mrs Ellice.
Extracts from the log were printed, and some of the sketches reproduced by A H Packe, 'Richard Doyle in the Hebrides', in ‘Country Life’, 16 June 1950, pages 1790-1791 (where the two voyages have been conflated into the later).
