Many thanks to The Braidhaugh Holiday Park for facilitating this camera's location. The River Earn leaves Loch Earn at St Fillans and runs east through Strathearn, then east and south, joining the River Tay near Abernethy. The Earn is about 46 miles long. It passes by Comrie, Crieff and Bridge of Earn. The surrounding land is generally flat and is occasionally subject to flooding. The Earn is popular with anglers and fishing permits are usually required. Crieff (Scottish Gaelic: Craoibh, meaning 'tree') is a market town in Perth and Kinross, Scotland. For a number of centuries the Highlanders came south to Crieff to sell their black cattle whose meat and hides were avidly sought by the growing urban populations in Lowland Scotland and the north of England. Crieff was the prototype 'wild west' town. Milling with the cattle were horse thieves, bandits and drunken drovers. The inevitable killings were punished on the Kind Gallows, for which Crieff became known throughout Europe.
