Lealt River

A river of the Trotternish peninsula of the island of Skye in Highland Council Area, the Lealt River rises in the foothills of Hartaval and flows north and east for 4 miles (6.5 km) to empty into the Sound of Raasay at Invertote. For the last quarter-mile (0.5 km) of its course the river enters a spectacular gorge and descends over several waterfalls. The section between the last waterfall and the sea supports breeding salmon, giving the Lealt River the reputation of being the shortest salmon river in Britain.
