“Little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

15th century hump back bridge hidden away from the noise of the bustling suburb of Bride of Don. Well worth a visit. There is a circular walk which takes in both sides of the river. Also if you walk over it and walk a short distance up the hill on the right there is what looks like a secret door to somebody's garden. However is the entrance to a river walk to Seaton Park.

“a hidden gem in the hustle and bustle of the Granite City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2012

The quaint residential area of Brig 'o' Balgownie can be accessed by the riverside path running through Seaton park. Take time to explore the paths running along side the river and take in the stunning views.
Sadly theres no place to sit and have a coffee, however it's a cracking place to take a picnic on a sunny day or crunch through the frost during winter.
