'Woven Sound' at Falls of Falloch The 'Woven Sound' installation which provides a different viewpoint for the falls. Constructed from steel rods by John Kennedy; the installation features an entry from Dorothy Wordsworth's diary that recalls the thoughts of those who visited the falls during the days of the Grand Tour.
The words of Woven Sound Dorothy Wordsworth (sister of the poet William) penned the following words in 1803.
'Being at a great height on the mountain, we sate down, and heard, as if from the heart of the earth, the sound of torrents ascending out of the long hollow glen. To the eye all was motionless, a perfect stillness. The noise of waters did not appear to come this way or that, from any particular quarter: it was everywhere, almost, one might say, as if 'exhaled' through the whole surface of the green earth. Glenfalloch, Coleridge has since told me, signifies the Hidden Vale; but William says, if we were to name it from our recollections of that time, we should call it the Vale of Awful Sound.
Dorothy Wordsworth, 1803'
