Corehouse scenery

Previous - Next

We cannot pretend to describe any part of Corehouse in detail, though, from the kind hospitality of the proprietor, we had an opportunity of looking over the grounds for two days; but the extent of the walks and the variety of the scenery are so great, that to do so would require either a longer period, or the assistance of notes and sketches to refresh the memory. We left Corehouse; and the kind and most intelligent family of Lord Corehouse, with deep regret, and can only console ourselves by hoping that, at some future time, we may have an opportunity of visiting both again. We were sorry to observe, by a Railroad Report then just issued from parliament, that a line of road is projected to pass through the estate of Corehouse, between the house and the stable offices. Fortunately there is little chance of this line being carried into execution, otherwise it would completely destroy Corehouse as a country residence.
