Thomas Campbell is remarkable for his sentimental poetry. Most of his poems deal with common human problems. The poem begins with the daughter and her lover, the Scottish chieftain arriving at the banks of Lochgyle with the intention of eloping to a safer place.
The lover offers the boatman a silver pound to cross them to safety. The weather is stormy and it is very dangerous to cross the Lochgyle in such a state. The boatman hesitates because agreeing can cost him all of the three lives. Then the beautiful daughter of Lord Ullin pleads to the boatman; she says that she is ready to face the raging storm but not her angry father.
Finally, the boatman agrees to take them across Lochgyle. The boat has left the shore when Lord Ullin and his men reach. His heart melts and he cries out to her to return and that he would accept her lover. But it is too late and before the Lord could do anything, the little boat capsizes and the three of them are drowned in the turbulent waters of Lochgyle. The water wraith is the spirit of the lake.
The water of Lochgyle has become turbulent and very noisy due to the storm. The poet has used a symbolism to prepare the reader for what is going to happen.
The spirit of the lake seems to be lamenting at the imminent death of the two lovers. What are they? What is it about? He agrees to take the lovers across the sea even in such a terrible storm.
This shows his valiant nature as well as his kindness towards the lady and his lover. Bonny means charming. Give a few examples of alliteration from the poem. The examples of alliteration are: a. Lord Ullin was against their marriage. The two lovers had to cross the Lochgyle to get to Ulva so that they could be married and escape the wrath of her father.

His wrath then changed into wailing and he stood at the shore lamenting over the tragedy.
