"The subject of this view is situated about 100 yards to the north of the Trossachs Hotel, in a picturesque gorge of the mountain. In rainy weather the stream comes down in a roaring torrent, but in its more usual aspect it is a gentle murmuring rill, which only serves to lull asleep the tired tourist after his pleasant stroll amongst the scented birches of the Trossachs.

'No murmur waked the solemn still,

Save tinkling of a fountain rill.'"

Descriptive letterpress from the book 'Photographs of English and Scottish Scenery' by G W Wilson
