Dulsie Bridge & Gorge

Highland | Ferness | Bridge & gorge | ★★

[Dulsie Bridge]

The Findhorn is one of Scotland's longest rivers, yet it's relatively little known. Its massive catchment area - covering both the Monadhliath Mountains and the extensive Dava moor - is responsible for occasionally devastating flood events in its lower course. Further upstream, it's a much more difficult beast to become familiar with: long sections are miles from the nearest road while other parts flow through deep gorges with thick undergrowth and no paths. Dulsie Bridge offers a rare glimpse over one of the wildest spots; this arched road bridge dates to 1755 and rises 60 feet above the riverbed.
