River Dee.

I posted the wrong picture earlier, this is the River Dee, the other picture was taken from the bridge over the river entering the village. When Queen Victoria visited Ballater she liked it so much that she bought nearby Balmoral Castle which is still a royal estate to this day.

Thank you so much for posting this photo, I have biographies about Queen Victoria and numerous novels that mention the River Dee and I'd never really seen a photograph that made me think, "Ah, so that's what it's like!". This one did.
