Grand Canyon - nae its Rumbling Bridge !

Route: Rumbling Bridge Gorge and Crook of Devon

Date walked: 09/01/2014

Time taken: 0.45 hour

Distance: 1.25km

Ascent: 40m

Recovering from a knee injury I decided to try the Rumbling Bridge walk.
No Munros here, and instead of going uphill, its down into the murky depths of a Gorge.
Like everywhere else the now - everything is wet, soaking, and muddy. Still it was a very pleasant outing with plenty of fabulous scenery. Especially at this time of year when there is no leaves to obscure the view.
I followed the Walkhighlands route and it was pretty accurate.
The highlight of the trip is the Bridge itself - a magnificient structure precariously overhanging a sheer drop into the gorge below. See picture.
If you want a short walk one day this winter, and the weather is against climbing the hills - why not give this a try - you won't regret it !
Regards, Second Chance.
