We’re starting to collect photos and stories from people of all ages, and family stories too, about memories of the River Ericht – and anywhere else in the catchment as well, have a look at the map below. Do you have a favourite place, or times spent fishing, wild swimming, bird watching, picnicking, reflecting or just walking by the river? If so we would love to collect and document them.

Tell us what the River Ericht means to you!
