Cora Linn

Cora Linn

Cora Linn, about half a mile from Bonnington, is considered the finest of the River Clyde Falls. It is only, however, within these few years that this grand and imposing scene could be enjoyed from the bottom of the. Formerly, the spectator could only contemplate the tortured waters from above, and thus, much of the effect was lost. This inconvenience, however, has been most happily remedied by the taste and liberality of the proprietor, who has caused a flight of steps to be cufc along the face of the opposite rock, by which the visitor descends into a deep and capacious amphitheatre, where he finds himself exactly in front, and on a level with the bottom of the Fall. Here the imagination is bewildered by the grandeur and sublimity of the scene. The vast body of water churned into foam, and projected in a double bound over the precipice; the dark and weltering pool below; the magnificent rampart of grim perpendicular rocks which project and undulate round him on the left; the romantic banks opposite ; the rich garniture of wood with which it is mantled; and the river, after a stormy passage, again pursuing its placid course in the distance-sparkling, as if purified by its recent struggles-present altogether a spectacle which may challenge comparison with the finest scenes of the kind in Switzerland.
