SCOTTISH HOLIDAY 2010.

PAGE 2.

 

We left Yellowcraig and moved North to Banchory where we stayed for three nights on the side of the River Dee, also known as the Royal Dee because of it's connection with the Royal family.

We had a day in Banchory, one day at Loch Muick and Balmoral and the other in Aberdeen.

On the south side of Banchory there is a small river which feeds into the Dee in Banchory. Half  mile upstream are the Falls of Feuch. Salmon and Sea Trout 'run' the river to spawn in the upper reaches and to get there they must get over the falls. There needs to be a bit of floodwater to give them the depth they need as they are about 200 yards long and very steep.

SCOTTISH HOL - 2007
 
 
 
 
The day we went to Loch Muick we were met at the car park by this gorgeous cock Chaffinch.

Leaving the car park we walked up the path towards the loch. All the time we were looking for Red Squirrel for which the area is noted. Joan spotted one running behind the visitor centre but there were no sign of them, even near the feeders.

As we got nearer to the loch I spotted a herd of Red Deer feeding in a rough pasture.

 

Further up the track we got a full view of the loch. There is a walk round the loch with a marked pathway. About 7 miles I think.

I failed to take photographs of interest other than the ones above.
