About Reekie Linn Waterfall

Reekie Linn is actually a pair of linked falls on the River Isla, with respective drops of 6m and 18 m. The path to the waterfall passes close to the edge of a steep-sided gorge, and there are sheer drops of 150 feet down to the water below. At the base of the waterfall is a dark cave called Black Dub, where legend has it that an outlaw once hid until the devil appeared before him in the form of a giant black dog.
