Panorama taken perched on the steep banks of the River North Esk at Rosslyn Castle in Scotland. The river here flows through a narrow, steep gorge, and the banks are covered in white flowers, overshadowed by the trees providing a magical scene. Along the banks near to this point are the remains of an arch, which may have spanned the river in times past.

There is more than one River North Esk in Scotland. This one flows through Roslin Glen, past Roslin, Rosslyn Castle and Rosslyn Chaple, emptying into the Firth of Forth at Musselburgh a little west of Edinburgh. There is a bridge across the river within the Roslin Glen park. The river can be quite deep and fast flowing at some times.

The other, more famous, River North Esk is in Angus and Aberdeenshire. This, one of the most famous salmon fishing rivers in Scotland, is fed by the Water of Mark from Glen Mark and the Water of Lee from Loch Lee, flowing into the the North Sea just north of Montrose.
