Bracklinn Falls facts for kids
|Location||Callander, Stirling, Scotland|
Over recent years there have been a number of tragic incidents at the falls.
The name of the falls should mean speckled or white foaming pool.
In 2004, a long-standing steel footbridge over the falls was washed away by severe floods. In October 2010, a new, 20-tonne wood-and-copper footbridge, spanning 20m across a very deep gorge, was hauled into place by hand because the location made it impossible to use a crane. In July 2011, this new bridge won an award at the International Footbridge Awards.
