Linn of Dee

Uisge Dhè, or to use its Anglicised name, the River Dee, flows for 87 miles from high in the Cairngorms down to the North Sea at Aberdeen. Just before Braemar, with 60 miles still to go to Aberdeen it would be wrong to describe it as the infant River Dee, more like a turbulent teenager, it torrents down a spectacular 330 yard rock gorge known as the Linn of Dee. Linn actually means a pool and there are many pools scoured out over the millennia by a vortex of swirling waters.
