Excerpt from Macalpine, or on Scottish Ground, Vol. 1: A Novel

The estate of Morven, in the Grampians, commences on the west with the village of that name, lying at the foot of a conically-shaped hill, thickly grown with the fir-tree. Through the village northwards, in a semicircle, making for high ground at the west side of the hill, runs the turnpike road, which overlooks the rapid river - refreshing to eye and ear as it runs its pebbly course amid the stately firs and pines that clothe the high and steep banks, and stretch their shaded and dense magnificence upon the brows of the mountains.
