The Indian River flows along the base of Campbells Mountain, crosses the Whycocomagh Road near the start of the guardrails, and joins the Skye River shortly before the latter enters Whycocomagh Bay. It is a very pretty stream, but one which you have to seek out, as it hides itself from view on the Whycocomagh Road, which follows the river’s course well above the river bed from the start of the guardrails to the cemetery.

In past years, there was a sign on the Whycocomagh Road marking the Roseburn Road; I saw no such sign this year. I am also unable to locate in my notes an exact distance from Highway 252. Travelling west towards Glencoe Mills, the Roseburn Road is the first right hand road that one encounters after passing the cemetery, roughly 6 km (3.7 mi) from Highway 252.

After turning onto the Roseburn Road from the Whycocomagh Road, 0.2 km (0.1 mi) later, one arrives at a bridge over the Indian River from which there are good views of the river. Another 0.2 km (0.1 mi) further up the road, one comes upon this beautiful scene. The hills seen here are the flanks of Skye Mountain; Campbells Mountain is at the left, outside the scope of this photo. Roseburn Road itself dead ends some 6 km (3.7 mi) from its start.
