Owner description: 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.

Down a dead end road around 6 miles but worth the effort as it is so pretty. Unspoilt waterfalls, loved the peace.

Visit whenever you can,beautiful Place to see especially a day or two after heavy rain when the River Dee is swollen with the rain from the hills.

The Linn itself is a swirling torrent of peat stained water, boiling through a small gorge. Dangeorus - so keep children well back;there have been fatalities here.
But the 6 mile drive to this spot from pretty Braemar is worth it for the beautiful ancient pinewood forests and lovely picnic spots beside the crystal clear River Dee as it is quietens down beyond and before the Pots themselves.Heather hills all around and big, remote empty country right at hand.You can also walk 20mins or so from the car park to the old bridge in the Derry Lodge direction and you'll soon be away from any 'crowds'. Or go further along the single track road towards Allanaquoich and the road end for walks into beautiful Glen Quoich and its stately Scots Pines.There are walks in just about every direction you choose, long or short.
The area is picture postcard in winter with snow on the hills.You are over 1000ft up here, sometimes easy to forget.Red squirrels abound.

This is breathtaking. Very much worth the drive. You can camp there, and the water is so soft and clean you can swim there, very carefully. It really makes you appreciate the world you live in.
