On the Alness River, near Invergordon

This postcard shows a view on the Alness River, near Invergordon.

The River Alness, also called the Averon, flows from Loch Morie in Easter Ross 12 miles to empty in to the Cromarty Firth at the village of Alness. The upper reaches flow through moor land and conifer plantations but here in the lower reaches it flows through pasture and rich woodland. Oak, ash, hazel, cherry and alder trees and an abundance of wildflowers grow along the banks. There is a popular walk along the riverside. The river is well known for salmon and trout fishing.
