The River Braan begins its journey as the river Quaich on the mountains to the south of Loch Tay. It flows in a south easterly direction to Loch Freuchie. This is a broad shallow loch in a wide high glen. From here the Braan proper runs for 10 miles towards Dunkeld. Just before joining the main river the Braan drops over the Hermitage Falls.

There are two considerable descents which makes the upstream passage of migratory fish impossible. The Scottish Office has undertaken a wide variety of salmon studies on the Braan, by stocking out with fed and unfed fry. This allows scientists to study the fish in an "uncontaminated" environment. They have also studied the passage of salmon smolts over the falls and found that a surprising number actually survive a 20m fall!.

Since adult salmon are absent, this area is of special interest to the trout angler. The country is often wild and untouched and the fishing exceptional.
