The Lecht, Cockbridge and Linn o’Dee

The A939 Cockbridge to Tomintoul road across the Cairngorm mountains can be hazardous in winter – before global warming turned snow to rain and ice to mush.

The old Cock Bridge was designed for foot soldiers to get access to highland areas of Scotland to suppress the people and has been known to ground tourist coaches attempting to cross.

The Linn o’ Dee is a short waterfall on the River Dee at Braemar. It is a fairly dramatic run of water but the rocks can be slippery and the pools deep.
