Come on a short drive with us, to the famed Linn of Dee.
Here the Dee runs relatively wide and smooth.
But if you see a bright blue sign urging ‘caution’ — believe it.
Intrepid souls may climb down to the water. I stayed near the top, and spared a thought for the two drowned girls memorialized in a stone marker near the bridge.
Cross to the other side of the bridge, and the river runs fast and cheerful over long low rocks perfect for sitting on a sunny day.
You might even see some wildlife. This lady was bigger than my cat. Than both my cats, put together.And drive home again past snow-tops in the Cairngorm.
