Descriptive Gazetteer Entry for Afforsk

Afforsk, a picturesque ravine in Gamrie parish, Banffshire. It is deep and winding: has precipitous, diversified, luxuriantly plant-clad sides: is split into two, about half-way down, by a steeply acclivitous ledge of rock, called the Ruin of Afforsk: and descends, past the old church, to the sea. The view of it from the Ruin,both upward and downward, is strongly romantic.
