Hethpool Linn. Just to the north of Hethpool Mill the College burn flows into a narrow gorge. Here the waters are funnelled through a very tight gap with a small waterfall. Immediately after this the burn opens up into a wider valley just below Collingwood bell. The picture below tries to convey the wildness and debris associated with this area. It is beautiful and we have spent many a happy and quiet summer day here …but this is basically the “spout” where the flood waters hit wider land and the rushing waters quieten.
