Linn o' Dee

The Story Behind the Image - Linn o' Dee

The Linn o' Dee is an attractive gorge on the River Dee, west of Braemar. Its main claim to fame is that Queen Victoria enjoyed picnicking here.

Victoria lived at Balmoral Castle, further east along the River Dee from Braemar. The Linn o' Dee is well worth visiting even without its royal connections; this is a strikingly beautiful area, especially in autumn when the leaves start to change colour and the woodland is a luxurious wash of gold, orange and red colour.

I came here in early November while touring around Royal Deeside from my base at Braemar. What I remember most was the amazing peacefulness of the scene, even though the water was tumbling through the gorge.
