I think this was posted on FB a few months ago, a high water scout? The Bogair? If not it could have been the Ghiubhais? (Loch Rannoch southern tribs - not done any of 'em myself)

not quite, I think that's the high water allt mheuran pic you're thinking of. Right on with the south side loch rannoch tribs though. It's probably the most well known one.

Well I guess it's the Dall burn then. Don't recognise it though.

Yep! It's the long kind of 'chute' rapid, just seen from below. I think it's the last bigger drop on it but it was a few years ago now.

That looks like the main rapid on the badacro but with a lot more water than when I paddled it! The rest of the run must have been pretty fun too at that level if thats what it is.

Heres a view of the crux of a section looking upstream and downstream from the middle of it. Where is it?

Looks Italian. Not kayaked it but perhaps a section of the Ayasse?

Ticino? Not sure it's the Cannobino, what about the San Giovanni?

Actually they are both in Italy so it's probably neither of those....

You are right about it being in tichino, thought I have just remembered that the put in is in Italy...

Ribo? (Or as a second guess, had to use rivermap - the Isorno)

Very close! This run is a bit further south and joins the Isorno I think.

Yeah thats it, really fun run! In classic tichino style its in a pretty commiting gorge but has some quality rapids. The first third of the crux is a portage but with a bit of imagination you can launch in an run the rest of it. Yo wouldn't want too much water!

Sounds, good. Not explored much around there but most of the gorges seem pretty committing!

This one might be too easy.

Nope not in Wales or the UK, actually maybe it's not as obvious as I thought...

Far to sunny for Wales!

One of the upper sections of the Inn?
