The Blackwater River, Garve near Strathpeffer

This postcard shows the Blackwater River, Garve near Strathpeffer.

The source of the Black Water is in the mountains at the head of Strathvaich. The river was dammed in the 1950s to create Loch Vaich, part of the Conon Valley hydro-electric scheme. Out of this loch flows Abhainn Srath a 'Bhathaich. From its confluence with the Glascarnoch River it is known as the Black Water.

The Black Water, which is well known for trout and salmon fishing, continues to Loch Garve and then on to join the Conon. In the Old Statistical Account (1791-99) it is referred to as the River Rasay.
