Veins of Tay

(Not just) waterfalls of the northern Perthsire.

The river Tay has the largest discharge in the UK, and it is the Scottish longest. Many of its tributaries are streams all over the lower region of the Highlands. The ones in the north part of Perthshire district often have some nice waterfalls, so here's a photo-collection of some of them.

Probably the most famous are Black Linn Falls, (pictured above) located near Dunkeld.
Just a bit further are Braan Falls:

Further north is a town of Pitlochry, with neat Edradour Falls:

Just west of the town are Tummel Falls:

Each of the rivers has plenty of small, unnamed streams flowing into it, with cascades along.

Waterfalls aren't the only interesting thing on the rivers. At the Loch Tay, there's the Scottish Crannog Centre, which shows a reconstructed water-based dwelling from the Iron Age:


North Pertshire serves as a bridge between Highlands and Lowlands, and given by the number of rivers here, there are loads of literal bridges worth mentioning:

Pedestrian and a highway (A9) above river Tummel. Both of these are used by cliffjumpers to dive down.

Stone bridge over Braan ravine in east Ballinlick. Super atmospheric place!

Gary bridge..

That cage suspended on the bottom is a permanent bungee jump platform. It is the first of its kind constructed in the UK.

The Hermitage

And of course, bridges on Tay itself:

Dunkeld, from 1809.

Smeaton's Bridge in Perth, built 1771.

Also Dundee
