Overview

The Linn O' Dee gives unrivalled access to some fine examples of classic features of a Highland landscape: remnants of the ancient Caledonian pine forest, heather moorland and parts of the high Cairngorm plateau. Fifteen of the Cairngorms eighteen Munros can be found on Mar Lodge estate. The less adventurous can enjoy the short walk to the stunning gorge under the Linn O' Dee Bridge or explore one of our all abilities trails. The car park also hosts a seasonal information hut and toilet facilities. In accordance with our wild land policy trails are not way marked but you can download a trail booklet from our website or pick one up from the rangers office in the old estate stables.

Above Braemar in the forest is the Linn O'Dee. After driving over the bridge and parking the car we turned back towards the bridge and saw the chasm with the river in full spate rushing through the cleft in the rocks.

Was there on 3 Jun 2018. What a beautiful location - for a quick visit or even a long walk. There was even someone swimming downstream from the bridge. I highly recommend a visit to Linn O'Dee if you are in Braemar.

The Linn O’ Dee is a beautiful area to visit and view the river and the pine forests. It is a great place for a picnic and there is adequate car parking. Lovely to visit at any time of the year.

Beautiful at any time of year - only six or so miles on from Braemar. Go by bike if you can, the ride and views are worth it.

We spent the morning exploring the area. The walk by the river, sitting on the rocks and watching the water cascade over them into the ravine. Beautiful place to take some time and take in the surroundings.

A magical place regardless of the season! Stunning scenery with a breathtaking drive into from Braemar. Well worth a visit whether for a picnic or the starting place of a walk. A wonderful combination of scenery, flora and fauna.
