That looks like High Force in mirror image! Somewhere in the Cheviots?

Is it Davidsons Linn on the Usway Burn in the Cheviot's?

Looked at it years ago, kind of forgot about it though. How was the rest of the run?

Davidsons Linn sure is, we paddled it yesterday, an excellent run continuous fun and about 14k long, me Bob Evans and James Connor got down it. Found 3 easy portages, (fence and trees in calm areas and one nasty stepped weir), and some nice ledges drops n slides. Its the most remote paddle Ive been on in the uk, their was comparisons to eggy / whitsundale beck! Bobs on the write up duties!

That looks like a heck of a walk-in Stu! (Or did you have a 4x4 and some keys?!)

Good effort anyhow - I'm looking forward to receiving a guide for a river in the north I hadn't even heard of before you mentioned it!

You can get within 2k of davidsons linn, the VW transporter managed the track fine, so did bobs smax to be fair! The walks worth the goods!

In case you missed it, Stu, Bob and James have been at it again, check out the latest guide to an otherwise unheard of burn in the Cheviots containing an 18m fall: http://www.ukriversguidebook.co.uk/rive ... nhope-burn
