"The lower end of Loch Katrine, whence the river issues, is as rich in wild grandeur as the more usually visited places in the district, and the precipices of Ben Venue are here seen to great advantage.

The tourist should on no account miss the scenery which is to be met with on the south side of the river. The road from the Hotel leads round the head of Loch Achray, past the farm house, and on to the pass of Beal-ach-nam-bo, which is shewn in the view as an indentation in the outline of the distant mountian.

The Pass itself is a beautiful glade overhung with birch trees and rich in ferns, by which the cattle, taken in forays, were conveyed within the protection of the Trossachs."

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