The Upper Falls Of Moness, Aberfeldy
Photographer: Wilson, George Washington
Medium: Photographic print
"In order to view the Upper Falls of the Moness, the visitor must ascend a zig-zag walk, cross the first cascade, and advance among the woods towards the summit of the hill, where he will discover, from the verge of a huge precipice, another cataract tumbling in one sheet of spray into a deep hollow whence the stream rushes furiously, and is lost in the deep gloom of a wood beneath.
'The hoary cliffs are crown'd wi' flowers;
White o'er the linn the burnie pours,
And, rising, weets wi' misty showers
The birks of Aberfeldy.'
Such is Burns' description of these Falls, which is strikingly accurate, and has ever since given a new cleebrity to the scene."
