Dee  Aberdeenshire


In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Dee like this:

Dee.-- river, partly of Kincardineshire but chiefly of Aberdeenshire; rises amongst the Cairngorm Mountains, on SW. border of Aberdeenshire, and flows E. past Castleton of Braemar, Ballater, and Aboyne, to the sea at Aberdeen; is 87 miles long, and is still one of the most finely wooded and one of the best fishing rivers in Britain; about 6 miles above Castleton of Braemar it forms a series of cascades called the Linn of Dee.
