Had a cracking trip to Seven Linns on Chirdon Burn yesterday. Bit of an arse to find but it was well worth it!

Any updates/photos for the guide?

I've not heard of anyone else running it since Bob Evans!
Done any NE/NW rivers not on the site? PM me!

In terms of access, the easiest way to get to the falls is to join the forestry track at 707870 (In line with the dam) and follow an OS map to Seven Linns. This track is the only one which the forestry commission keeps open.

Also the 3rd fall/slide isn't really runnable at low levels.
