Cartland Crags

Cartlan Craigs

To see the Cartland Crags in Lanarkshire, under the most picturesque colouring, the tourist must thread his way along the rocks, and vary his station so as to take in every combination of objects in succession. At every turn of the river, a new and varying scene of rocky grandeur, heightened by the accompaniments of the stream, and a rich and brilliant foliage, bursts on the view. What gives peculiar interest to this romantic solitude is, that, in a natural cave of the ravine, the renowned Wallace once found refuge from his pursuers, and at length emerged to hoist the standard of liberty. The recesses of the craigs present a rich variety of plants to the botanist, and above the falls several rare species of mosses. The new bridge, which, like a lofty aqueduct, spans the chasm, is an elegant specimen of modern architecture. The height of this noble structure is one hundred and thirty-six feet above the water. The view which it commands is among the finest in the country.
