UPPER FALL OF FOYERS Upper Fall of Foyers Mr. J. Cameron, Tenant.
Mr. MacDonald, F. C. [Free Church] Schoolmaster, Errogie
Mr. John Fraser, Foyers
054 [Continued from Page 43] is the bridge of one arch thrown across the River from which travellers can view if in perfect security.
LOWER FALL OF FOYERS Lower Fall of Foyers Mr. J. Cameron
Mr. J. Fraser
Mr. A. McBean
054 There are different positions from which the Lower or principle Fall may be viewed to great advantage. One of the best is from the edge of the rock early opposite to it on the west side of the River, but it is believed that strangers are seldom directed to this spot.
GREEN POINT Green Point Mr. J. Cameron
Mr. J. Fraser
Mr. A. McBean
054 The more favourite view is from what is called the Green Point which fronts the body of water in its descent; it is a thin rock projecting forward beyond the Common Bank, covered with a green sward almost always saturated with the spray which ascends from the Fall, and which particularly when the wind blows from the North rises some hundred feet high. The access to the Greenpoint has now been rendered easy and safe, by a footpath made to it, within these few years from the high road"
