Photograph of a bridge over the river Garrawalt in the Ballochbuie forest, Aberdeenshire, that tumbles over boulders bordered on either side by trees. The bridge comprises a single arch and is of wooden construction.    

According to notes taken during Wilson's early photographic tours published in 1859, the The Falls of the Garrawalt were 'spanned by a handsome rustic bridge' and was 'one of the most attractive sights on Deeside.'
