Suisgill Burn

A small river of the Sutherland district of Highland Council Area, Suisgill Burn rises in the western foothills of Cnoc an Eireannaich and flows westward to merge with the River Helmsdale in the Strath of Kildonan, 2 miles (3 km) north of Kildonan Lodge. Along with the Kildonan Burn to the south, the Suisgill Burn was the centre of the Sutherland Gold Rush of 1869. The river still contains productive quantities of gold.
