Alison Sykora: There are a few good pools for lazy swimming and a nice pool in the bend in the river close to the golden gates at Benmore gardens. There is a natural rock bridge in a small deep pool towards the top of the glen. Be aware the river can flow fast and be dangerous in full spate.
The river can be very fast and have strong currents after a lot of rain, beware of narrow fast flowing channels and submerged objects. Keep to the big pools and
