In the footsteps of J.W. Carmichael and the engravings made from his drawings, in this case the Cor burn with the dominant Aydon castle in the background. This exact view was not surprisingly hard to find on the ground. The work could be created at some difficulty from a view above the castle where it was almost possible to see the castle through the trees, but the reality was that the engraving undoubtedly shows the crossing just below the castle – and a view similar to the one depicted cannot show the castle in the distance in this way. So a composite, then.
