Scottish Fire and Rescue are desperately trying to protect properties from rising waters across Perthshire, Tayside and Angus, though Ballater has so far escaped further flooding.
A total of 35 flood alerts are still in place from the Scottish Environmental Propection Agency as communities across the east of the country brace themselves for further disruption.
In Ballater a giant wall of one-ton sandbags has been piled three-deep and one up along Golf Road in a bid to prevent a repeat of Wednesday’s flooding havoc.
Pictures have started to appear on social media of flooding occurring in Aberdeen at Bridge of Dee this morning.
