We had decided on a round of the eastern peaks of the Cairngorms for our backpack and set off walking from Linn of Dee at 9am. It was dry as we headed north through the forest to reach the bridge over the Lui Water.

It was nice to be walking amongst the trees and to hear the wind in their branches. After almost 2km we left the last of the trees behind and followed the path down to where it crossed the river. Although it didn't look to be too tricky to wade here, we would clearly have got wet feet so we detoured upstream looking for alternative crossing points. After a few hundred metres we were able to cross where the river had separated into two channels around a small island.
