This is a beautiful fast moving river. There was a lot of tree trunks stuck at one place and they were jumping all over the place in the fast moving currents. It is a lovely place to have a sit and great views.

For me the river at Ellisland Farm was the best. The farm was where Burns lived and wrote. Lots to see and the riverbank walk is great.
