Ellen's Isle, Loch Katrine
Photographer: Wilson, George Washington
Medium: Photographic print
'The stranger viewed the shore around;
'Twas all so close with copsewood bound,
Nor track nor pathway might declare
That human foot frequented there,
Until the mountain maiden showed
A clambering unsuspecting road,
That winded through the tangled screen,
And opened in a narrow green,
Where weeping birch and willow round
With their long fibres swept the ground.
Here, for retreat in dangerous hour,
Some chief had formed a rustic bower.'
