Photograph of a view of the Castle of Braemar, shown in the distant background. The castle is surrounded by trees. The River Dee flows towards the viewer with a boulder in the centre separating the passage of water. In the foreground stands a stone wall and gate. In the middle ground, on the far left, stands a person looking at the river. There are fields and hills in the distant background, behind the castle.
