"This beautiful Fall is three miles westward from Castleton by the road leading to Ben-muich-dhui. The ravine is a deep gash in the rock, narrow and precipitous, but having all its asperities softened off by the profusion of birches and creeping plants with which it is matted.

The Fall slides down pearly white through a winding slit in the rock, where its gentle surface is in close companionship with the tender wild flowers that are kept in eternal green by its spray.

Close by the Linn is the Highland Residence of the Right Honourable the Earl of Fife, who usually spends the autumn at this delightful spot in the enjoyment of the forest sports."

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