River Leven walk by Dalquhurn | Riverways | G82 4LS
What is a Riverway? A riverway is the part of a river that boats can travel on, or the route or course of a river. Within West Dunbartonshire there are 3 riverways of which River Leven walk by Dalquhurn is one. Along these you can see remnants of the river's past from pulleys where botas were able to transfer their goods to the shore to large bays where ships were built. The riverways also provide great habitats for fish such as brown trout, sea trout and even salmon! Many birds can also be seen along these routes including cormorant and the red-breasted merganser. Waders are also present and include redshank, oystercatchers and curlew. Eider ducks, goldeneye and little grebes can be seen near the Leven mouth and look out for the dipper on the River Leven!
