It seems like you had a fabulous day, BT :D
I wonder who's been building cairns in the river?
Sounds like a lovely time and thank you so much for posting the pictures :)

Thanks all. It was a fab day. As for the stones in the river...this spot is popular with walkers and families. There is a picnic table just a few meters away and this was at the start of the walk, near the closest car park and near the ranger station. So, the stones may either be genuine zen stones (it seems like a lovely spot for a bit yoga and meditation and all that, or people just having a bit of fun in the river building stacks out of stones.

Gorgeous photos - I've never seen brown water look so inviting and picturesque (and that's not sarcasm). Thanks for sharing your adventures with us. :D

The rivers in that area are a lot of fun. This one (and in this spot) is a favourite spot for families just wanting to dip in and cool off. We saw a few people with kids and towels.
But there are some rapids in places so it depends...
There is another spot on the Dee (which this one here - the Tanar - flows into) that is a fab spot for wild swimming (unless it's been raining, then it's too fast...some kids had to be rescued from a rock there last week). Oh, and the color is odd but the water is pretty good...even if you have to share it with the odd salmon and other fish.

Thanks. There are lots of gorgeous Victorian bridges around there. We crossed three during the walk, but this one caught the light just perfectly.
