Cateran Ecomuseum

River Ericht

One of the Ecomuseum’s most scenic rivers.

The rapid and often turbulent water course of the River Ericht is formed from the confluence of the rivers Blackwater and Ardle which join together north of Blairgowrie & Rattray at Bridge of Cally.

It runs south from there for around 16km (10 miles) before falling into the River Isla which runs into the River Tay. Before it reaches Blairgowrie & Rattray, it cuts through the impressive Craighall Gorge, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and ancient semi-natural forest, highly valued for its botanical and entomological interest.

The scenery on its banks in many parts, particularly at Craighall and in the neighbourhood of Blairgowrie, has often been described as ‘very romantic’.
