"Advancing along the bottom of the glen in which this water flows, the traveller arrives at a deep cavern upon the right, wrought out by the stream, and terminated by a great cataract consisting of several breaks.

It is almost overarched with frowning rocks and trees which project from their crevices, but this only adds to the beauty of the scene.

Though the pathway has been steep, and the traveller may be somewhat fatigued, he may here rest awhile and gaze upon the foaming waters, at the same time calling to mind the description of the scene by the Scottish Bard, when he sing -

'The braes ascend like lofty wa's,

The foaming stream deep roaring fa's,

O'erhung wi' fragrant spreading shaws,

The birks of Aberfeldy.'"

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