"The Moness water traverses a deep narrow dell, has a run of about five miles, and falls into the Tay near the village of Aberfeldy. The lowest fall occurs about a mile from the village, and consists of a natural flight of steps in the rock, which produces a pattering noise in its descent.

The village of Aberfeldy is now much resorted to in the summer season by visitors in quest of life's best blessing - health. Its neighbourhood abounds with several objects of interest. It is beautiful for situation, has some repute as a watering-place, and, having such attractions, it is likely to prove soon a very thriving and rising town."

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