Many thanks to The Burn for facilitating this camera's location and to Aberdeenshire Council for capitally funding its installation in partnership with Esk Rivers & Fisheries Trust & District Salmon Fishery Board The Gannochy Bridge, completed in 1724, spans the South Esk at a height of 65 ft by means of a single arch of 52 ft span at a point where it flows through a deep gorge cut through the local red sandstone. It was a bold effort for its time, built at the expense of James Wood, a local farmer, who employed a mason to build the arch but constructed the parapet walls himself. 

The Highland Boundary Fault is a major fault zone that traverses Scotland from Arran and Helensburgh on the west coast to Stonehaven in the east. It separates two distinctly different physiographic and geological terrains: the Highlands from the Lowlands, and in most places it is recognisable as a change in topography. Where rivers cross the fault, they often pass through gorges, and the associated waterfalls can be a barrier to salmon migration.
