'S e caraid dhan innleadair Tòmas Telford a bh' anns a' bhàrd shònraichte Shasannach, Raibeart Southey (1774-1843). Ann an 1819 chaidh e còmhla ri Telford air turas de na pròiseactan innleadaireachd aige anns a' Ghàidhealtachd, nam measg Slighe-uisge a' Ghlinne Mhòir a bhathar a' togail aig an àm. Chaidh leabhar-latha de na bha e a' faicinn fhoillseachadh nuair a bhàsaich e ann an 1929 mar 'Journal of a tour in Scotland in 1819'.

Sgrìobh Southey trì pìosan bàrdachd airson clàran a bhiodh a' comharrachadh na slighe-uisge agus air an togail aig Clach na h-Aire, Cille Chuimein, agus Bainbhidh. Seo an clàr a chaidh a chur aig Clach na h-Aire ri taobh an rathad A862 tron bhaile. Chaidh a chur suas ann an 1822. Tha am pìos bàrdachd ag aithris:

'Where these capacious basins by the laws
Of the subjacent element, receive
The Ship, descending or upraised, eight times,
From stage to stage with unfelt agency
Translated, fitliest may the marble here
Record the Architect's immortal name.
TELFORD it was, by whose presiding mind
The whole great work was plann'd and perfected;
TELFORD, who o'er the vale of Cambrian Dee
Aloft in air at giddy height upborne
Carried his Navigable road; and hung
High o'er Menai's Strait the bending Bridge:
Structures of more ambitious enterprize
Than Minstrels in the age of old Romance
To their own Merlin's magic lore ascribed.
Nor hath he for his native land performed
Less in this proud design; and where his Piers
Around her coast from from many a Fisher's Creek
Unsheltered else, and many an ample Port
Repel the assailing storm; and where his Roads
In beautiful and sinuous line far seen,
Wind with the vale, and win the long ascent,
Now o'er the deep morass sustained, and now
Across ravine, or glen, or estuary,
Opening a passage through the wilds subdued'
