North Esk, River
(North Water)

A river of Angus and Aberdeenshire, the North Esk is formed in the southern Grampians by the meeting of the Water of Mark and the Water of Lee in Angus. It flows east and southeast through Glen Esk, falling down through the Braes of Angus to the valley of Strathmore where it flows onwards to enter the North Sea 4 miles (6 km) north of Montrose. Its chief tributaries are the Water of Tarf, Luther Water, West Water and Craick Water and its total length is 29 miles (47 km). From a point 2½ miles (4 km) north of Edzell until it meets the sea, the North Esk forms the boundary between Angus and Aberdeenshire and is also known as the North Water.
