Reekie Linn

Reekie Linn

This impressive waterfall is one of the most spectacular in Scotland. It is linked to two falls on the River Isla. When the river is in spate, the two falls merge into one making a huge 24m drop and sending up a mist of spray, hence the name Reekie Linn.

At the base of the waterfall is a dark cave called the Black Dub, where legend has it that an outlaw once hid until the devil appeared before him in the form of a giant black dog. The outlaw was so scared that he turned himself in the next day.

The waterfall is very accessible. It is located in woodlands west of Forfar/Kirriemuir, and is only a short walk from the Craigisla Bridge on the B954.
