The immediate neighbourhood abounds with scenery of the wildest and most romantic character. / The River here is as clear as crystal, owing, no doubt, to its being composed of rock and pebbles. The banks on / either side are studded with foilage so dense as to render access to the neighbourhood almost impracticable.
