I used to go clay pigeon shooting at Glenn Rinnes , do not remember the river being called that - think it is Dullan River .

Aye yer right Pete, it's called Dullan Water which flows into the Fiddich then into the Spey.

Aberlour, ok i'll give you that as a bonus along with the Knockando and Mundole, but not the ones i was looking for as sport on these pretty patchy. Tromie yes and Dullan certainly but still leaves four more.

Tributaries of Tributaries count remember. :wink

Keep guessing

Nope still missing four, or at least the four i'm looking for.  :wink  The red ones were never required, given sport on these is rather patchy. :cool:

 final clue:  Not as far down as Aberlour, or as far upstream as Grantown, given it away now :z4

Too general Peter.
Sorry Jim not the Flow Country, but good guess.

Given that Scotland has a lot of exposed high areas there are certainly several places that could hold this title, but there's only one that has been officially refered as tundra.

So specific name of area please.

OK, tricky. I thought it would have to be Alpine Tundra, so I'd also have guessed at the Cairngorms as they kind of fit the description of tundra I remember from geography lessons at school :z8

The stab in the dark for me would be Hoy in the Orkneys, if I remember rightly it's one of the very few places in the Orkneys which still has woodland and again (back to school days :!) I think a tree line is needed to mark where tundra begins/ends :?

I'm not sure. Thinking cap on for this one Allan  :wink
