Belter in Ballater

After enjoying sunny morning in Aberdeen, decided with Charlotte and Lola to get most of the rare nice weather and to go for a wee trip. Idea was to follow river Dee and The Royal Deeside Railway which finally took us to Ballater where we stopped to see Cambus O May station. Charlotte's grand dad bought it years ago and converted into a small cottage. You can see the photos of how it from 60's and some of the pics I took. Next to the cottage is an amazing suspension bridge. It was built in 1905 to give pedestrian access to the railway station. Highlight of the day was as always Lola. She disappeared few times, only to come back carrying enormous sticks. During the walk she awaken her inner gypsy/traveler bare-knuckle fighter and jumped a flock of sheep. After our desperate chase we finally found her around a mile away totally happy and knackered. Unfortunately there was no sign of sheep. Taking into consideration that it all happened just at the river side we have few possible scenarios... I would like to think that it was a fair fight and sheep managed to run away... otherwise it would be one big awkward turtle.....
