River : River Annan
11th Longest River in Scotland
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.
