The spacious hotel erected for the accommodation of the numerous tourists who visit the Trossachs is a turreted edifice, standing at the east end of the Pass on the site of a cottage which long gave entertainment to tourists, and which bore the name of Ardcheano-chrochan, signifying 'the high end of the rock.' Although refering to another scene, Sir Walter Scott's words might well apply to this building -

'It was a lodge of ample size,

But strange of structure and device;

Where oft a hundred guests had lain,

And dream'd their forest sports again.'

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