River Orrin

The River Orrin has a length of 14.6 kilometres and originates at the north of Loch Monar a further 26 miles to the East and is dammed in Glen Orrin which makes Loch Orrin. 

Just upstream from this photograph the Orrin forms the Falls of Orrin. Further downstream the river is joined by the Allt Goibhre, and then into the River Conon near Urray and subsequently flows into the Cromarty Firth.

We chose a lovely day to cycle from Muir of Ord to the Falls of Orrin, choosing the back roads to Aultgowrie rather than the main roads, and then into Fairburn Estate.

When we arrived at the river and Falls we were lucky enough to see some Grey Wagtails dotting about the rocks trying to catch their lunch, and fish jumping at the base of the falls.
The wood anemone and primrose were also in bloom. It was a lovely way to spend the start of the Easter Holidays.
