Ran this yesterday, it dropped a couple of feet and was probably on the low end when we got anyway so a bit of a rock bash but in a stunning setting. Everything clear and runnable, look out for the 143 year old graffiti by the falls.

When assessing level from the takeout bridge, be aware that the volume doubles when the Little Water of Fleet joins it a few hundred metres before the bridge (flat water). Would have been excellent with a bit more water, the glen is gorgeous!

Jim, we ran this a couple of year ago, sounds the same situation as us! The upper half is pretty good and would love to do it again with more water.
