Loch Katrine, Looking Towards Ben Venue
Photographer: Wilson, George Washington
Medium: Photographic print
"Loch Katrine is about ten miles in length, two in average breadth, and in some places so deep as 488 feet. Its form is serpentine, and a road (from which this view is taken) conducts along its northern shore to Glengyle. From this point the rugged side of Ben Venue forms a prominent feature in the distance, throwing down upon the lake its
'Crags, knolls, and mounds, confusedly hurl'd,
The fragments of an earlier world.'
And it is pleasant to watch its ever-changing aspect, as the long summer day advances to its close."
