"The Rumbling Bridge is a single arch across the mouth of the chasm, nearly level with the crest of the waterfall, and takes its name from the rumbling noise of the fall beneath it. Into this gulf the Braan pours itself with great fury, foaming and roaring over the massive fragments of rocks which have fallen into its channel, and casting a thick cloud of spray high above the bridge.

On returning, the visitor may inspect the little village of Inver, which was the birthplace of Neil Gow, and still contains the cottage in which he resided. A rising ground adjacent to it commands a grand view of the grounds of Dunkeld, and the best of all views of the strikingly picturesque hill of Craigiebarns."

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