The true source of the River Tay

    I wonder whether it is meaningful to have a precise “source” unless by that is meant the longest line in length. Last year I looked for the source areas of the Clyde ( which was fun.

    I love you photos by the way.

      Hi Tony,
      I wondered something similar. I’ve always thought of the source of a river as being the farthest point from the sea. I walked up near Ben Lui (source of the Tay) last year, amazing to think the water ends up at Perth. I’ve also wondered about the Clyde’s source, particularly when I drive past on the M74. I like your photo of the Daer water, captures the empty space up there very nicely.
