River Isla and Keithwick Bridge

A river of Angus and Perth and Kinross, the River Isla rises in the southern Grampians on the border between Angus and Aberdeenshire. Its headstreams, the Caenlochan and Canness Burns, flow down from the 1064-m (3491-feet) Cairn of Claise and on its course southwards to the valley of Strathmore it is joined by the Newton Burn, the Burn of Kilry, the Cromie Burn, the Dean Water and the Burn of Alyth. Before it meets the River Tay near Cargill, the Isla is joined by the Ericht to the northeast of Coupar Angus and by the Lunan Burn to the east of Meikleour. Its total length through Glen Isla and Strathmore is 46 miles (74 km).
