If you’re wondering where you can walk your dog in Aberdeen, then look no further as we’ve rounded up some of our favourite spots.
Whether you’re a dog sitter in Aberdeen or you are out and about with your own pooch, Hazlehead Park offers over 400 acres of beautiful woodland and parkland on the outskirts of Aberdeen. It’s a wonderful place to walk your dog and features two rose gardens, many sculptures and it’s own maze! Whether you want to explore the woods or have a run around the park, you and your dog are sure to enjoy your day.
With its gorgeous floral display at Cathedral Walk, Seaton Park makes for a great place to walk a dog in Aberdeen. It’s also home to the walled garden, which is perfect if you fancy a more secluded, quiet spot during your dog walk, where you can enjoy a range of flowers and plants.
If you’re a dog walker, you’ll probably want to visit Balmedie Beach. No matter the weather, the expanse of open space and gorgeous sand dunes make for a lovely afternoon walk. You can also hire a beach barbecue in Summer months or head to the nearby dog friendly pub for lunch.
If you borrow a dog in Aberdeen why not take a trip to Kirkhall Forest. You can spend a few hours exploring the beautiful trail around the large forest area. There is a view tower at the top of the trail so you can admire the stunning views. Your dog, borrowed or owned, will truly enjoy it.
Where to eat in Aberdeen with your dog
Once you’ve exhausted all of the great dog walks in Aberdeen you might want to stop for a spot of lunch, all that walking can be hungry work!
The Long Dog Cafe
This cafe was started when Big Gav, an adorable dachshund (long dog), couldn’t find a place to relax and get warm on a cold rainy day in Aberdeen. Therefore, his owner created a cafe for him. Set in the West End of Aberdeen the cafe offers a friendly and relaxing environment for you to meet for coffee, brunch or a spot of lunch. All dogs are welcome as long as they are accompanied by a well behaved owner.
From morning to evening, this place serves up healthy, locally-sourced food for all dietary requirements. If you are vegetarian or vegan - this is where you should go. And of course, pups are more than welcome. It’s a short walk from the Aberdeen Harbour so why not stop off after a spot of sightseeing.
A stone’s throw from Victoria Park is the Queen Vic. Not only is your pup welcome here, but you can also enjoy many a fun evening with frequent pub quiz nights, sporting events, live music and tasty craft beer. Have a great Friday night and save the cost of a dog sitter in Aberdeen!
The Broadstraik Inn
Want to take a long country walk and end with some great food, then this is your spot.

Our favourite part is that they have food and water dispensers at the ready for pets too, so everyone is catered for.
