Glass  Inverness Shire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Glass like this:

Glass, a river of Kiltarlity and Kilmorack parishes, N Inverness-shire, formed, 2¾ miles SW of Glenaffric Hotel, by the confluence of the river Affric and the Amhuinn Deabhaidh. Thence it winds 12 miles north-eastward along wooded Strathglass till, near Erchless Castle, it unites with the Farrar to form the river Beauly. During this course it descends from 250 to 160 feet above sea-level, and is a fine fishing stream for salmon and trout, the latter running up to 4 lbs.—Ord. Sur., shs. 73, 83, 1878-81.
