Many thanks to The Inn on the Tay for facilitating this camera's location and capitally funding its installation. The Tay, a famous salmon river, rises in the Highlands and flows down into the centre of Scotland through Perth and Dundee. It is the longest river in Scotland and the seventh longest in the UK. The Tay drains much of the lower region of the Highlands, its source being high on the slopes of Beinn Laoigh. The source is only c. 20 miles from the west coast town of Oban, in Argyll and Bute. The Tay flows through Perth and Kinross to the Firth of Tay and the North Sea, some 100 miles to the east. The river has a variety of names in its upper catchment: for the first few miles the river is known as the River Connonish; then it is called the River Fillan; and then the name changes again to the River Dochart until it flows into Loch Tay at Killin. The River Tay emerges from Loch Tay at Kenmore, Perth and Kinross, and flows from there to Perth which, in historical times, was the lowest bridging point of the river.
