It was precisely to the eye what the croak of the raven is to the ear. It was an utter desolation, in which Nature seemed deteriorated and at her worst. Winter could not possibly sadden the region ; no spring could quicken it into flowers. The hills wore for ornament but the white streak of the torrent ; the rocky soil clothed itself with no heather.
Стр. 149 - has neither the matchless depth and delicacy of coloring which characterizes the foot of Loch Katrine, nor the wild grandeur of Loch Coruisk, nor, in fairness let us add, the dignity of Loch Maree; but ... it blends together in one scene a greater variety of the elements which we admire in lake scenery than any other Scottish loch.
