Grant allows bridge over River Don to be rebuilt at Strathdon
A bridge over the River Don at Strathdon is to be rebuilt thanks to a £120,000 grant.
Money from the Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA) and Scottish government is making the bridge - aimed at walkers and cyclists - possible.
A wooden bridge built more than 100 years ago collapsed into the river in the 1970s during flooding.
The Cairngorms Outdoor Access Trust (COAT) will manage the work on the new bridge.
CNPA deputy convener Brian Wood said: "The people of Strathdon told us during the consultation on core paths that they wanted the footbridge rebuilt and a better path to the recently renovated Lonach Hall.
"We're delighted to be in a position to provide this funding to COAT to deliver the work and see their wish come true."
