Spring flowers on a wee stroll from Kincardine O'Neil

Date walked: 04/05/2018

Time taken: 2 hours

Distance: 6km

we parked in Kincardine O'Neil and took the new Deeside Way path up into the Dess Wood, across a new bridge over Dess Burn, then back via the banks of the Dee to Kincardine o'Neil.
Here are some photos I took playing with the macro setting on my new camera
