Painting No. 98
The Borgie is small compared to most Scottish salmon rivers, flowing from its source in Loch Slaim at the feet of Ben Loyal to its braided, gravelly mouth in the wide sandy bay of Torrisdale. Unlike the neighbouring River Naver, which is infamous as the scene of many atrocities during the Clearances, the Borgie is not widely known outside fishing circles - which is a pity, for this river is delightful, despite its sombre name. The river flows through Borgie Forest, one of the most northerly in Britain and the first managed forest in Scotland. The preponderance of lodgepole pine and sitka spruce lend the river a distinctly Canadian feel in its middle reaches, but further up the river sparkles and plunges through pools and waterfalls across moorland that could only be Scotland. Besides salmon and trout, the river also abounds in otters and fresh-water pearl mussels, but the greatest treasure is, perhaps, the spiritual refreshment it offers to all with the time to linger and explore.
