Shortly after the Diamond Bridge opening, otherwise known as the long awaited Third Don Crossing, we took a quick trip past to check it out, but the other night, myself and Emma braved life ruining hayfever, and went a wander through some of the surrounding areas, like the woods in between Campus 2 and 3 of the Balgownie Science & Technology Campus, and the Grandholm footbridge, which is currently closed unfortunately.
This post is as close to home as it gets, and will mean absolutely nothing to anyone outside of Aberdeen, and although it’s probably 20 years too late, the Third Don Crossing is finally open, so we went to check it out.
There’s not much to say about it to be honest, there’s still quite a bit of development to go, but the main bridge is open, so at least that’s something.
The Brig o’ Balgownie is a 13th century bridge which spans over the River Don in Old Aberdeen, and is one of my favourite places in the whole of Aberdeen City.
Although there’s only one shot of the bridge in this post, and it’s not even of the most recognisable arch, there’s a few different areas you can walk on either side of the bridge, or you can just hang about and enjoy the peacefulness and look out for some seals!
