Expedition to the Falls of Glomach

In Gateway to Skye, Macpherson writes of several trips to the Falls of Glomach, none lacking adventure, and often misfortune! He tells of one visit in the company of young women dressed in bathing costumes. He writes, 'giddy heights and yawning chasms held no terrors for them. They were impervious to the attacks of midges and mosquitoes'. Macpherson, on the other hand, in his khaki shorts, provided the insects, 'on my wretched limbs all the sustenance they needed'
