FossilCycle pointed out in the comments on my post yesterday that we were just down the road from the Linn O’ Dee when we visited Braemar. If you Google Linn O’ Dee you’ll see this is a place worth visiting. So we drove back to Braemar today, a drive I would happily repeat because the views are so lovely the whole way there.
The road from Braemar to Linn O’ Dee was snowy in parts and so I got all panicky again about getting stuck or sliding off the edge of a cliff and basically nearly crapped my pants. Then when we arrived I really did need to crap and the single toilet in the carpark was closed! Oh woe was me 😦
So we dashed down to the gorgeous gothic bridge and the gorge, quickly took some snaps and jumped back into the car again in order to get back to Braemar and a toilet. The only good thing was that suddenly I wasn’t worried about the snow and the icy, narrow road as all I could think about was emptying my bowels. Ben said he’s never seen me drive so fast. I’m just at the whim of my body’s needs.
We managed to get some good pics though and it really is a magic place.
