This is a picture of the Rose Garden at Balmoral Castle which lies between Ballater and Braemar on the south Deeside road, which once carried on through the estate to the bridge at Invercauld, but now meets with the north Deeside road via an iron bridge built in 1857 to afford the Royals more privacy.
Below the windows on the west side of the castle is the rose garden pictured above, which like all the gardens at Balmoral is designed to be in full bloom when the Royal Family is in residence between August and October.
This part of the picture collections of Scottish photographs shows the variety of the Scottish landscapes and natural features which make up the country of Scotland. There are further pictures which show such diverse topics as scottish castles to images of industrial landscapes.
This set of pictures were taken by the Young Enterprise group of Loudoun Academy in Ayrshire (2005-06) who sold them to this site as part of their project. The group were particularly successful and won their regional finals.
