NH4992 : Beach above the Carron gorge

taken 5 years ago, 3 km from Wester Gruinards, Highland, Great Britain

Beach above the Carron gorge
Beach above the Carron gorge
Following on from rocky rapids below East Amat, the River Carron flattens out for a kilometre before the start of its gorge. This beach, river right, provided a handy landing spot for a quick inspection of the rather more exciting bit of river which continues for the next 400 metres to a footbridge below the Old Schoolhouse. There's a rocky shelf river left which is just as good for a quick nip out to the bank, but trees make getting a view ahead a little awkward that side, so a longer walk is needed.
