The celebrated Scenery of the Trosachs lies immediately beneath them; and from their summits can be distinctly traced "the windings of the Chase" so beautifully described by the late Sir W. Scott in his Lady of the Lake. The valleys in the vicinity of these mountains are of small extent. There are 5 lakes in the parish of considerable extent Loch Katrine, Loch Chon, Loch Achray, & Loch Drunkie.
