Quote from Atlantic Salmon Trust (http://www.atlanticsalmontrust.org/where-to-see-salmon/buchanty-spout-easter-glenalmond-by-crieff-perthshire-river-almond.html):

"The Spout is a dramatic pothole and powerful waterfall on the River Almond and is probably the best site in Perthshire for enjoying the spectacle of leaping wild Atlantic salmon. In the late autumn the salmon fight their way up through the gushing torrents, determinedly pressing on to reach their spawning grounds upstream. "
