Welcome to the Explore Royal Deeside GeoTour with the chance to earn a trackable geocoin by finding 20 special caches hidden among dozens of caches in mini-trails around castles and lochs, in forests and glens, and along the Deeside Way. To be eligible for one of the gold or silver geocoins you must collect a codeword from each cache, and earn bonus points. Full details are on the GeoTour Passport, which you can download here. The Explore Royal Deeside GeoTour stretches from Drumoak in the east to Braemar in the west. An area steeped in history with spectacular scenery, threaded by the River Dee.
This section of the Deeside Way, from Kincardine O'Neil to Aboyne takes the high road, affording good views to the south in particular. The Way enters Dess Wood and drops to a bridge. Before the final bend above the bridge a narrow path to the right leads to the viewpoint looking towards the waterfall.
