Paddle Point

Put in here for the grade 3/4 section to Gannochy Bridge. It can be rocky at first but the only way to avoid this is a serious hike with your boat so suck it up.

Paddle Point

The rapid is obvious from above due to the old bridge pillar on the large sandstone outcrop beside the fall. There is a large eddy river left just as you come round the corner and see the bridge pillar. It is best to get out and inspect from here as the lead in starts below this and is generally trickier than the fall itself. A path leads up from the eddy and along the bank if you want to portage and can be good for inspecting if the river is high and hopping along the rocks isn't possible.
The lead in drops through a wave then a grippy hole before heading for the fall itself. The right side lands on rocks! The left side has a slide with a super kicker if you hit it right. The fish ladder itself does get run occasionally for the novelty but is not recommended as it's not really that much fun.
After the tight gorge below is a pool where it is possible to get back in if you portage.

Paddle Point

Alternately called double/triple step/drop depending on who you talk to.
There is the obvious mass of white water as the river drops through several large holes in close succession then you get a breather in the pool. Round a couple of corners is a small tricky drop called President's Corner due to the number of club presidents who have swum there.
Portage is simple but strenuous on river left. There is a gully just past President's Corner where it is easy (ish) to get back in.
If you want to have a shorter trip then you could take out here as there is a layby on the road above signposted Rocks of Solitude.

Paddle Point

This is the take out for the lower North Esk. Eddy out upstream of the bridge and climb up the steps cut into the rock. There is a path along the top of the gorge to a wooden door, through which are your cars in the layby! This is a heavily used car park and the man in the house here gets angry when people ruin his grass by parking on it, so if it's full there is more parking round the corner on the road up the glen. It's not that far away.

You can also put in here for a gentle paddle down to Edzell at g1-2.
