Bridge at East Amat
Bridge at East Amat
The River Carron has the advantage of being runnable (for kayakers) in low water when other rivers just are too much of a bump and scrape. It was barely worth driving all the way from Fort William, but such were the drought conditions at Easter 2013 that we had been doing a lot of travelling looking for water all week !

The worthwhile section starts at a put-in river left, from a layby just above the bridge seen here and bumps down one cascade before passing under the road. The view is from part way down the next set of technical rapids where the map marks "waterfall". The waterfall itself is a vertical drop into a boily rockmill that paddlers shy away from (well, at this level, certainly) and known as "Granny's hole". There are much safer ways down, leading to a fine gorge, but it would have been nicer to have at least a bit more water than shown here.
