View of the Upper falls of the River Clyde in Scotland. Dorothy Wordsworth travelled through Scotland in 1803 with her brother William and the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge. She described the scenery and countryside in a diary, she writes of William’s reaction to falls at Boninton Linn,
“… coming down unexpectedly upon it, he was exceedingly affected by the solemn grandeur of the place… the river, down which you look through a long vista of steep and ruin like rocks, the roaring of the waterfall, and the solemn evening lights must have been most impressive”.
