Dess Falls Spring zxc0184jhp 
 Dess Burn waterfall Sloc falls rocks trees springtime Scotland water Aberdeenshire located by the Dess Road, heading north from the North Deeside Road after leaving Kincardine O誰eil going west towards Aboyne. The Dess burn creates this delightful small waterfall known as the Sloc O'Dess best viewed from the roadside layby but ideal view at water level is inaccessible except to those willing to scramble up a steep rocky gorge side although a recent set of hand rails and some rough steps have made access to the lower viewpoint much easier. A constructed viewpoint on the eastern bank is reached by a long walk from the North Deeside Road. The falls are now near a recently constructed section of the Deeside Way, a walk and cycle track going from Aberdeen to Ballater, loosely following the old Deeside Railway line.

Aberdeenshire located by the Dess Road, heading north from the North Deeside Road after leaving Kincardine O誰eil going west towards Aboyne.
