Noticed on Sunday a massive amount of debris from the recent spate blocking the exit of the main flow on the broken weir before Brechin.

Sorry, I don't have a name for it. Its a long weir with a large break which carries most of the flow. Follow that line and your into a lot of trouble approx 50m down river. Looks fully blocked from back at the weir.

Alternative is to take the right channel and slide over the weir to the right. No obstructions but a bit scrappy.

Pic of the weir I found from earlier last year on SOTP. Apologies for nicking the lads pic...I'm sure he wouldn't mind under the circumstances.
