Photograph from an album of a single arched stone bridge spanning the Clunie River which flows vertically through the frame towards the foreground. Part of a building, partially obscured by the bridge can be seen in the right of the foreground.

The Clunie river joins the River Dee at Braemar, where this photograph was taken. This photograph is a later carbon copy of the original albumen photograph. Carbon was a process that was less susceptible to fading, unlike an albumen print that is prone to discolouration over time.
