On the Alness River, Ardross

The River Alness (also known as the Averon) has a catchment of 203 square kilometres, rising in the Kildermorie deer forest in Easter Ross and flowing for some 15 km first through flat high moorland, before descending a rocky waterfall and then through a fast tumbling boulder-strewn section, to Loch Morie.

It has one of the steepest descents (over 600 ft) of any river of comparable length in Scotland, although there is no significant waterfall
