Scotland – day 3 (part 2)

After exploring Fort George, we headed to the Cairngorms, a stunning part of the country and one of my favourite walks of the holiday. We were aiming for a walking spot near Braemar, but as with all our travels so far, the car journey was just as spectacular as the destination.

We parked in the Linn of Dee carpark and set off for a walk through the woods running alongside stunning waterfalls. This area was one of Queen Victoria’s favourite parts of Scotland, and as a bit of a fan of this wonderful monarch, I was excited to explore. In fact, the gothic bridge which you cross to reach the carpark was officially opened by the Queen in 1857!

Not bad for a photo snapped out of a car window!
