Looking South along the River Garry from the Garry Bridge

Emerging from the north end of Loch Garry, the River Garry flows southeast for 22 miles (35 km) through Atholl in highland Perth and Kinross before joining the Tummel 2 miles (3 km) northeast of Pitlochry. On its course through the Pass of Drumochter and on to the Pass of Killiecrankie, the river falls nearly 300m (1000 feet) and skirts the settlements of Calvine, Blair Atholl and Killiecrankie. Described by Queen Victoria as "very fine, rolling over large stones, and forming perpetual falls", the principal tributaries of the Garry are the Edendon, Ender, Bruar, Tilt, Allt Girnaig and Errochty.
