This is a view from our bedroom window on the misty morning of the 31st October 2009.
And the top dam below the drive later that morning.
Last night, however, the forecast depression came in and rainfall has fallen heavily for the last twenty-four hours or so.
Here is that top dam again in the midst of all this rain.
This is the middle of the three main dams below the drive at Bamff, taken this afternoon at about 15:30.
And here is the lowest of the three big dams. A new one is being built about twenty five metres downstream of this one and it looks as though another one is in a very early stage of construction another twenty or so metres below that.
Why would a salmon or sea trout not manage to leap this dam?
This is a view from further downstream of the same dam. A sheet of water is flowing into the original ditch.
