Many thanks to the Philiphaugh Estate & The Salmon Viewing Centre for facilitating this camera's location and to Tweed Rivers Fisheries Association for capitally funding its installation. Visit the Centre and learn all about the life cycle of the King of the fishes from the Salmon Wall display. Then see what dangers lie in the river and how many survive after the female salmon has laid 5,000 eggs. Then watch the Salmon live on the interactive video screen and choose from 4 different cameras around the edge of the Ettrick river.

Then take a look at see how many salmon have passed through the fish counter which is in the fish ladder in the middle of the cauld. The counter is reset at the start of every month. The River Ettrick is a tributary of the River Tweed, is known also as the River Ettrick, often locally known as Wild Ettick, (though that title refers more correctly to the Ettrick Forest and the Ettrick Valley), and it flows through the village, and its flood plain, the Ettrick Marshes. It is the second fastest rising river in Scotland.
