The River Dee is an internationally important environment for wildlife and is designated a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) for its populations of Atlantic salmon, otters and freshwater pearl mussels.
Many thanks to to the folks at Bridgend Of Gairn Farm for facilitating this camera's location and to Aberdeenshire Council for capitally funding its installation in partnership with The River Dee Trust & Dee District Salmon Fishery Board. The Gairn originates in the eastern Grampians on the east flank of Ben Avon and then flows in a southeastern direction and takes up two mountain ranges after about three kilometers. It follows the valley Glengairn six kilometers to the north east and then flows eastwards for about 17 km. Lastly, the Gairn gradually turns south-east, flows through the A93 at Bridge of Gairn and finally flows into the Dee approximately 3.5 km northwest of Ballater
