Quotation"A most astonishing rain fell at Inverary, in Scotland, by which the rivers rose to such a height, as to carry everything along with the current that stood in the way; even trees that had braved the floods for more than 100 years, were torn up by the roots, and carried down the stream. Numbers of bridges were swept away, and the military roads rendered impassable. All the Duke of Argyle's cascades, bridges, and bulwarks, are destroyed, at his fine palace in that neighbourhood."[River Aray]
