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.
The Bin Forest, Huntly
Sunday 5th May 2019
For May’s walk we are heading out to The Bin just outside Huntly.
Choose to do the short or long walk (Ferny Knowe Trail or Queen Tree Trail.) Both start with a short climb, then follow easy paths through the forest – the Queen Tree Trail adds on an extra loop.
Do a sun dance, and bring a picnic as there are benches at the car park. The nearest toilets are a couple of miles down the road in Huntly.
The Bin is about 2 miles / 3.2 km north of Huntly on the A96. The (free) car park is signposted on the right with a brown sign to Forest Walks. Meet 10.45am ready to go at 11am.
Please note there are no poo bins, so we’ll bring a bin bag to collect all our waste to dispose of.
Using Sat Nav? AB54 4TS is the nearest postcode.
