Monthly Sighthound Walks
Our monthly walks are a gathering of hounds and always a lot of fun! All pointy faces are welcome along with their humans who like to share experiences and trade stories. The walks usually take about an hour, and if possible we offer shorter routes for the less spritely amongst us.
The Aberdeenshire Walk is held on the first Sunday of each month, whilst the Moray Walk happens on the third of the month. Locations vary to cover all parts of the counties.
In June the Monthly Walks are replaced by the Great Global Greyhound Walks. In 2018 an incredible 6387 dogs took part across the globe, can it be beaten in 2019? Now in its tenth year, the 2019 Great Global Greyhound Walk will take place on Sunday 9th June.
Aberdeenshire Monthly Walk
Balmedie Country Park
Sunday 7th July 2019
Meet at 10:45am ready to set off at 11:00am. The walk will be approx 1 hour.
The venue is Balmedie Country Park, this walk is a fantastic mixture of sand dunes, beach and play park with a picnic area.
For those of you with Satnav use postcode AB23 8XG. For everyone else its on the coast, east of the village of Balmedie 8 miles north of Aberdeen on the A90 road to Peterhead and Fraserburgh. The park is well signed from the A90. When you get into Balmedie turn onto the North Beach road and continue driving right to the end of the road where you will come to the car park, we will meet by the picnic area.
There is a new road system but it is well signposted.
This is a lovely walk and if the weather is kind to us bring lunch and let the kids loose in the play park.
All you houndies reading this get your humans on a lead and bring them along, I cannot think of a better way to spend a Sunday morning than at one of Scotland’s most beautiful beaches.
If you have not been before don’t worry just pop along and if you don’t know anyone before you came you will before you leave 😉
We look forward to seeing everyone!
Usual instructions apply – please keep all hounds on lead within in the group, muzzle if required and pick up the poop!!!
