Scottish Rivers - information and pictures on some of the most beautiful rivers in Scotland.

River : River Annan 

11th Longest River in Scotland

River Length km Length miles Description
River Annan  79  49 The River Annan (Uisge Annan in Gaelic) is a river in southwest Scotland. It rises at the foot of Hart Fell, five miles north of Moffat. A second fork rises on Annanhead Hill and flows through the Devil's Beef Tub before joining at the Hart Fell fork north of Moffat.

From there it flows past the town of Lockerbie, and to the sea in the fishing town of Annan. It is one of the region's foremost fishing rivers, despite being used for many years by Chapelcross nuclear power station which extracted water for cooling purposes, but in any case is now being decommissioned. The main fish found - and hence the target of anglers - are salmon and sea trout, brown trout, grayling and chub, with a few others such as pike.
