River Sorn

A significant river on the island of Islay in the Inner Hebrides, the River Sorn forms at the junction of the Abhainn Gleann Mhartuin (which flows from Loch Finlaggan) and the Ballygrant Burn. It flows southwest for 3¾ miles (6 km), powering Islay Woollen Mill at Redhouses and passing Bridgend before falling into the sea at the head of Loch Indaal. Its tributaries include the Abhainn Ath a' Mharcaicdh and the Daill River. A 2012 survey showed the river supports a healthy population of brown trout, together with a few salmon.
