The River Conon (Scottish Gaelic: Conann) is a river in the Highlands of Scotland. It begins at Loch Luichart, and flows in a south-easterly direction to be joined by the River Meig at Scatwell before passing through Loch Achonachie. It is joined by the Black Water at Moy Bridge, and the River Orrin at Urray, before flowing past Conon Bridge and into the Cromarty Firth (and thence the Moray Firth and North Sea).
The river is part of the Conon hydro-electric power scheme, with dams at Loch Luichart and Loch Achonachie, and power stations at Luichart and Torr Achilty. There are several islands in the river, including Moy Island, Dunglass Island and Garrie Island.
