The rivers rises very very fast when we have rain or snow melt as we are surrounded by hills but it abates very fast as well.It can be massive seething and chocolate coloured one day and completely back to a peaceful serene little river a couple of days later. If it is to high to cross go back a few hundred yards up to the farm with the donkey outside and go futher along the top path about half a mile further you will come to another path down to another bridge which is higher above the water this bridge brings you directly into Byrness. (in fact this is a more scenic route into Byrness Village)

Joyce,
can anyone pop in to buy from your shop or is it only available to guests?

Wish I had known that when I passed through Byrness. Would have saved a lot of doubling back!

Cheers Joyce that's really handy to know. When I do my N - E trip that will save having to carry two days supplies. Might even stay over.

No you right in your first post. Open sides, or it was a couple of years ago during my PW.
