various A river which rises in the Monadhliath Mountains. It takes the name of Findhorn from the junction of two smaller rivers named Abhainn Crè Clach and River Eskin, from this junction it runs between steep hills until it reaches the head of Strath Dearn through which it passes, here the country gradually assumes a milder aspect , the glen becoming wider with a strip of Cultivation on each of the river banks and dotted with many farmsteadings and Shooting lodges. After leaving Strath Dearn it enters the County of Nairn through which it passes in a northerly direction entering the County of Elgin near the village of Relugas, it passes through Elgin and falls into the Moray Firth at the village of Findhorn near Forres after a course of about forty five miles. Its course throughout its entire route is rapid and turbulent, and from the nature of the Country it drains; its floods are sudden and heavy.
