A short walk on a lovely Spring-like day to Rumbling Bridge, near Dunkeld. About three miles up the A822 after you turn left off the A9 heading north. It's a popular spot. Like most locals I've been there many times over the years and usually walk through from the Hermitage. However I was short of time today so just drove to the car park and tottered the hundred or so yards to have a look at the river, which was in spate after heavy rain and a snow melt.
This is where Millais painted his famous The Sound of Many Waters 'en plein air' as was his habit in Perthshire. I don't think the place has changed much since his day. The picture is now in Fyvie Castle, Aberdeenshire, and I went to see it several years ago. It's been done up a bit by the National Trust, but Fyvie is still a creepy place, well worth a visit.
