Fallen beech leaves soon to be gone by 


Autumn on the River Calder at Lochwinnoch. This small, rather hidden and inaccessible river at the back (NW) of Lochwinnoch was once a vital part of the town’s industry, supporting a variety of mills for not only grinding corn but for spinning wool, flax and silk as well. Only traces of this former industry now remain and it is hard to imagine how industrialised this area once was now that much of the valley is inaccessible, involving scrambling over slippery rocks and collapsing river banks but it is well worth the effort as this small but fast flowing river is forced through a narrow gorge. The river is worth visiting at any time of year but especially in the autumn when the water levels are high and the roar of the cascading water fills the air while a “snow fall”of beech leaves gently falls all around.
