The longest river in Scotland is the Tay (120 miles) and is one of the best salmon fishing rivers in Scotland. The Spey (110 miles) is the second longest river and is famous for the whisky distilleries around it.
The Clyde (106 miles) was famous for the shipbuilders that were here from the 19th century. The Cunard liner Queen Elizabeth was built at John Brown’s shipyard here and was at the time (1938) the biggest passenger liner ever built.
