GUIDE TO THE RIVER TROMIE
NAME OF RIVER: Tromie.
WHERE IS IT?: It's near Kingussie on the A9. It's a River Spey tributary.
Turn off the A9 at Kingussie and follow the B970 until you cross a bridge at Drumguish, this is the take out.
PUT-INS/ TAKE-OUTS: Drive up a private road on the right for a few miles. When the river comes close to the road, this is the put in.
ACCESS HASSLES: Unknown. See the SCA notes on Access.
WATER LEVEL INDICATORS: Look over the bridge, you can judge the level from here. We ran it on HIGH water and there were very large holes in this section.
GRADING: 3 - 5.
MAJOR HAZARDS/ FALLS: WEIR - can be taken on right.
GENERAL DESCRIPTION: Continuous grade 3 water leads to a gorge with a rapid turning a corner into a 6ft drop. Grade 3 water leads to a weir, which can be taken on the right. Grade 4 water leads to the section under the bridge with a very messy hole leading into a V-hole, a sharp turn and into another hole - lovely!
