I think the wrong River Lochy guide is posted here. The description is of a grade 5/5+ river near Tyndrum, rather than the much easier Lochy from Mucomir to Fort Bill.

Good spot, we have two guides with the same title which confused things a bit. The link to the two guides should now be correct.

Thanks.

Think this is the guide for the ORCHY which does run from Tyndrum to Dalmally-Loch Awe.

Lochy - same river as Spean - does run from Mucomir to the Sea but there is also a LOCHAY from Glen Lochay near Killin to Loch Tay.

The link seems to be correct, the River Lochy runs alongside the A85 (road from Tyndrum to Oban). It meets the Orchy just downstream (right, or towards Oban) from the A85/Glen Orchy road junction. Page 201 of the SCA 2nd edition guidebook.
