River Findhorn: Fence Across the River

Mon 18 February 2019

Fence across the River Findhorn, on the stretch in Strathdearn, upstream of Tomatin  (NH 752 232).

The fence consists of wire mesh suspended from a heavy cable. The cable is probably high enough to be well clear of the water at almost all water levels, the mesh part trails in the water and can lift to some extent with the water level. 

On a previous trip at slightly lower water levels I was able to stand in the river and hold up the wire mesh to allow boats through, obviously at higher levels this could become problematic/dangerous.
