“Cartland Crags are situated about a mile distant from the town of Lanark. The river Mouse, in its course to join the Clyde, here flows through a deep narrow ravine, nearly half a mile in length, exhibiting in its various windings a succession of the most wild and romantic scenery. On either side the banks rise bold, rugged, and precipitous; but, richly clothed with trees and copsewood, these shed a gloom over the recesses of this extraordinary defile, and give a character of picturesque beauty to its nearly perpendicular and rock-bound walls...The north bank, properly called Cartland Crags, is 400 feet in height above the stream. At one part on this side, the Crags have a truly terrific appearance, presenting an almost perpendicular front from top to bottom.”
