Many thanks to The Falls of Feugh Restaurant & Function Suite for facilitating this camera's location and to the River Dee Trust & Dee District Salmon Fishery Board for their help in arranging its installation. The Feugh is the largest tributary to the River Dee It rises in the Grampian Mountains, in an area known as the Forest of Birse, and has a particularly scenic aspect in a series of cascades at the Bridge of Feugh slightly above its point of discharge to the Dee. The Falls of Feugh are a short walk from the centre of Banchory. The footbridge is a popular place for spotting salmon leaping.  In the 1800's turnpike roads were constructed throughout Scotland and travellers were charged for their use of the roads. The toll houses were built with windows facing both ways along the road to catch passing travellers. There is a fine example of a former toll house at the Bridge of Feugh.
