Balmedie Beach and Country Park has long been a favourite with people in the north east for getting toes in the sand and exploring the beach, dunes on any day.  Many years ago, there was a visitor centre.  Once abandoned but now revived as The Sand Bothy.

This is a community enterprise which raises money for local causes and community improvements as part of the park.  They are holding a family fun day, with lots of activities, all very carefully priced to make it affordable for everyone.  Fantastic craft and play activities, stalls for adults, and come and see the exhibition about the dunes.

They also make fine real Fairtrade coffee and tea as well as selling local ice cream.  Make a date for your diary – Saturday, August 19th .
