Linn of Dee (or ‘Linn o’Dee’) is a very attractive fall on the River Dee, where the water passes through a narrow channel and then drops into rocky pools below over the course of around 300m (984ft). It is located on a small road west of Braemar in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
Much favoured by Queen Victoria, the area is a highly popular beauty spot and features numerous walking trails through the pine woods, with picnic facilities beside the falls themselves. The Linn of Dee forms part of the National Trust for Scotland’s Mar Lodge Estate, encompassing a tract of land on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park. With a reputation of being one of the coldest places in Scotland, it’s best to make sure you have the appropriate clothing when you come here.
