    The Gothic-style bridge, built by the 5th Earl of Mar and officially opened by Queen Victoria in 1857 spans the River Dee at the Linn o'Dee. The slopes rise steeply on either side, with tall stands of larch and pine looming high above the rushing water. The river runs for 300 metres through the natural gorge carved through the surrounding rock over millennia by the action of the water.

    Very nice image lends itself well for mono, possible the window on the left a little distracting
