The text on this postcard quotes from Dorothy Wordsworth's journal
of 1803, about a century before this card
" 'The Three Sisters', Glencoe:
was as if the glen were nothing: its loneliness and retirement. The
mountains were all in all.
lofty, rugged in surface, the whole mountain a mass of stone, wrinkled and
puckered up together. No trees in the glen - only pasturage for the
cattle; but the mountains."
