Still no luck! A little bit further south than all these suggestions but north of the falls of lora. Its in the 2nd edition guide book but not in the first. Any good info on the L.A. Rock? Scouted the lower section when stuff was dry and it looked like it would be fun on a big water day?

Floppy Donkey Dick burn aka a trip of the Roy? I forget the proper name, but I think I remember choosing not to boof into Hogg's face and consequently swimming like a fish on the middle drop...

Well that makes it the Duror or Salachan then, I heard the Duror had good stuff on it. It's not the Esragan which is also good and surprisingly steep.

LA Rock rocks! We put in below corkscrew or whatever it's called, that didn't look too appealing; the rest was fun but short with one notable slabby drop.

Correct! Its the the double drop at the start of the Salachan! The whole river is super fun with a bunch more smaller 4/4+ slides and drops but needs quite a bit of water to get going. I'll need to go and check out the Laroch and Duror.

The thing is, it looks like slate or shale which limits it, if north, to Wales, a corner of the Lakes and the central belt of Scotland but I'm not sufficiently familiar with these areas. I suspect it is elsewhere but I've nothing else to go on.

Wee creek suggests it's Scottish, as does heather in the background, but no idea where...

Looks a bit like northern Scotland. I think it's in a video called burn of the 9 Lochans I saw a while ago on YouTube but I don't know the actual name

You're right - "20 miles south of the north coast":

Now that looks like loads of fun. Is it in the guide book or listed in UKRGB river section, if not directions and location please.

Thought i'd mix it up a bit, definitely can't be a Scottish ditch because, as you can see, it is sunny...

Rhuddnant?

(but that would then make it a Welsh ditch, also not famed for being sunny!)

Closer with the sermenza, not quite the same country though. Scaled up a bit and not as clean as the sermenza.

Yup you guys pretty much got it right there is a pair of adjacent burns shown in that vid, in the Loch Hope catchment. Will be in the new guidebook. That was after not much rain so would love to go back with some more! Upper reaches are just a giant peat bog which helps retain the water.

Duncan's looks like an extract from another vid that was posted up recently. A bit of a one hit wonder in the Alps, France was it?

Will pass it on to whoever can tell me which valley it's in as the name of the river is pretty obscure....

This is a very educational thread, I'd never heard of the Sermenza until I researched for this.

Torrente Bogna? On the basis that it is not in the same country as the Sermenza

Not quite, had to google torrente bogna! The valley is near Briancon in France, also has a big 60 footer on another wee stream that gets run occasionally that joins this stream about 200m downstream of where the photo is taken. Will give it till tomorrow then I'll post something a bit less obscure to get things kickstarted again.

I thought the Bogna was by the Strona , in Piedmonte. Next catchment east from the Sesia.

Is it the Cerveyrette? I only have vague memories of it having run it just the once.
